Munce recently hung up his saddle, after 29 years, to take on the reins of training which continues his passion of horses and racing. Taking over from father-in-law Barry Mitchell, his new career as the trainer for Munce Racing has been a long time coming.

Chris's dream came true in the 1998 Melbourne Cup where he steered the Brian Jenkins trained Jezabeel to victory, earning his connections $1,680,000 plus trophies. He also won the Doncaster Handicap in 2001, and the Sires Produce Stakes, Spring Champion Stakes, and Champagne Stakes in 2004. On Savabeel, Munce took home the 2004 W.S. Cox Plate.His major wins in 2006 were the Salinger Stakes and LKS MacKinnon Stakes.

His shot at the Grand Slam came in the 2010 Caulfield Cup, where he partnered the Gai Waterhouse trained Descarado to victory in a well timed ride. Munce and Mick Dittman share the record in the Magic Millions Classic with three wins each.

Chris Munce won on Sunblazer in 1989, Excellerator in 2001, and Dance Hero in 2004. 

Having won 42 Group 1 Condition races including the Big Four – Melbourne Cup, Cox Plate, Golden Slipper and Caulfield Cup under the training of Australian greats such as Gai Waterhouse and Bart Cummings, Chris’s ability to lead a horse to a successful win is evidence of how he will take on his new career in training horses.
