Hugh Miles Training
One of the most important aspects of training is placing horses where they can win.

Hugh was a former top Junior Campdrafter and since joining the Open ranks he has vast experience as a trainer preparing feature event winners throughout the Campdraft, Cutting and Challenge disciplines.

Paradise Stallion Draft winner Conductor and Cloncurry Challenge winners Millionnic Chic and Woolerina Rhythm were among his early standout achievements.  However, each year he adds another prestigious title to his list of achievements.

2013 Paradise Lagoons saw a definite career highlight when Hugh and Oaks Riverqueen won the Supergirl with 180 points, before going on to win the Champion of Champions with a total of 186 points.

2014 saw Hugh and Conductor win the inaugural Charlie Maher Young Gun Draft at Landmark  with 92 & 92. He also finalled both Millionnic Chic and Conductor in the Open Draft and scored a magnificent 24 on both horses in the Stallion Shootout Cutout.

2015 again saw Hugh and Conductor in the winner’s circle at Landmark. This time winning the Stallion Shootout over 2 rounds of Campdrafting and a third round Cutout. He also scored magnificent 24’s on both Conductor and Millionnic Chic in the Stallion Shootout Cutout for the 2nd year in a row. This was followed by a big win at Warwick in the Champions Draft with Conductor again finishing with the blue ribbon.

Training draft winners has been a feature of Hugh’s career and these winners include Acres of Oak, Corvette, Dreamtime, Copycat, Copyright and Honey, but this feature now includes training cutting winners with Melody’s Chic and Dually Teles among his early cutting successes. He also aims to continue to prepare top quality Sale horses for both himself and clients.

The sales ring is another arena that Hugh specialises in, primarily presenting horses he has bred and trained for himself and his family. Landmark 2014, 2015 & 2016 were spectacular successes for Hugh and his performances in the sales ring and the competition arena were features of the weeks.

In 2014 he presented 4 Millionnic Chic progeny for a top of $42,000 and an average of $22,500 and to complete the week he presented the highest priced horse, Lot 477  Highway to Hell. $70,000, on behalf of Raelene Higgins.

In 2015 he won the Stallion Shootout, finalled in the Challenge and presented sales horses which sold to $26,000.

In 2016 Hugh presented the equal top priced mare, Dual Again, who sold for $70,000 and the highest priced stallion, Teles One Moore who sold for $60,000.  Further Millionnic Chic was on fire with his progeny selling for big, big prices and the Millionnic Chic progeny (see MC’s video gallery) were in finals throughout the competition.

2016 Warwick saw another big year for Hugh. He finished with 2 places in the Gold Cup with Honey scoring the highest score of the final to finish 3rd and he finished 2nd in the Stallion Draft with Reys Ya Garter after 2 rounds of Run Offs.
