Chris Englehart began his career at Finger Lakes Racetrack in 1967 as a hot walker.  He began training in 1973 and earned his first training title in 1985. Since then he has earned an additional 14 training titles and is the only Finger Lakes trainer to have over 4000 wins. Englehart was named New York bred Trainer of the year in 2011 by the New York Thoroughbred Breeders, Inc (NYTB).

Chris ranks 11th on the North America trainers list with 4096 wins. Horses from the barn of Englehart have won multiple stake victories including the 1989 Finger Lakes Budweiser Breeder’s Cup with Frattare (1997 Hall of Fame Inductee). His horses have amassed a sum of over $46 million in purse earnings.

Chris’s success could not be possible without the hard work and support of his wife Sheila and their six children. Chris is still an active trainer and remains a respected member of the Finger Lakes family.
