Trainer Tom Dascombe's statistics
This page provides a statistical analysis of our performance and enables its readers to follow our progress through the season and against the targets set for the year. Our statistics and targets follow a calendar year and the page will be updated on a monthly basis.
Our prize money target for 2012 was £650,000 and our winners target was 60. We achieved both of these by the end of September and finished the season with prize money of £867,832 and 81 winners. Our long term ambition is to record 100 winners and £1,000,000 in prize money in 2014, so our 2013 targets will represent a half-way stepping stone to this, with a prize money target of £825,000 and 80 winners. We also want to improve again on our finishing position in the table of UK prize money, where we finished 24th last year. 2012 was a another fantastic season for many reasons and we hope to go onto bigger and better things in 2013. Watch this space!

2013 strike rate (UK)
In 2012 we set ambitious targets of 60 winners and £650,000 in prize money, both of which we surpassed as early as September, in what was a fantastic season. The season in general exceeded all our expectations with another brilliant winner at Royal Ascot with Ceiling Kitty taking the Group 2 Queen Mary Stakes, and a further two Group 2 victories for Rhythm Of Light, in Turkey and America. By the end of the season we had racked up 81 winners and amassed £868,000 in UK and overseas prize money. In the UK prize money table for 2012 Tom finished 24th, a place higher than his target of 25th. In the winners table for 2012 Tom finished 12th, with 79 winners in the UK.
In Tom's seven full seasons as a trainer he has increased his prize money haul each and every year (see below), but none more so than this year, going from £585k in 2011 to £868k in 2012. In turn, we also increased our strike rate from 11.2% in 2011 to 17.0% in 2012.
