Tom Albertrani /Trainer

Tom Albertrani trains for West Point Thoroughbreds in New York and Florida. Albertrani has been involved in racing since age 13 when he ventured to Belmont Park to walk hots for his uncle. From then on, he developed a passion for horses that has lead him to the pinnacle of Thoroughbred racing. After learning the ropes from his uncle, Albertrani became a jockey at the age of 19, eventually winning 49 races. He then ventured to Kentucky and became an assistant to Mark Casse. He continued to gallop horses and eventually caught the eye of Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott.

Albertrani worked as Mott’s top New York assistant for nine years, working with top horses such as Theatrical and Cigar. In 1995, he was hired by Godolphin Racing and relocated to Dubai, United Arab Emirates. There, he was the top assistant to Saeed Bin Suroor and worked with notable horses such as Street Cry, Fantastic Light, and Daylami. Daylami captured the 1999 Breeders’ Cup Turf at Gulfstream Park. During Albertrani’s time with Godolphin, the organization won 85 grade and group 1 races. This endeavor allowed him to experience racing around the globe.

Albertrani returned to New York full time in 2003 and opened a public racing stable in 2005. In 2006, the regally bred Bernardini brought him into the national spotlight, winning five consecutive stakes including the Preakness and Jockey Club Gold Cup. Albertrani has continued his success across the nation, and has trained stakes winners Awesome Vision, Belle of the Hall, Empire Dreams, Freedom Child, King Congie, and Toasting, as well as world record holder Twilight Eclipse for West Point Thoroughbreds.

Albertrani resides in Garden City, NY with his wife Fonda and daughters Teal and Noelle.
