Donald grew up in a racing household; his father the legendary Ginger McCain trained 4 Grand National winners. He started his career as a jockey and rode some 40 winners. After giving up race riding Donald worked for Luca Cumani, Sir Michael Stoute and Oliver Sherwood as Assistant Trainer.
Having served his training apprenticeship with some of the top names in the industry he returned to Bankhouse stables to take over the reins from his father in 2006. Since then his record has been amazing.
Bankhouse Stables is set in the beautiful surroundings of Cholmondeley Castle Estate, in the heart of the Cheshire countryside. Bankhouse has stabling for more than 100 horses, superb private grass and two purpose built all-weather gallops. Owners and horses alike can enjoy the quiet and peaceful setting.
