Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Created by Gerald Glaister, the long-running British drama series Trainer was set in the rarefied world of horse racing. Hero Mike Hardy (Mark Greenstreet) wanted more than anything to be Great Britain's Number One horse-race trainer. In his pursuit of that goal, he crossed the paths of many a colorful character, and not a few lovely ladies. The series' theme song was performed by legendary pop singer Cliff Richard, and as such enjoyed extensive radio play. Debuting September 1, 1991 on BBC1, Trainer eventually trotted out 20 50-minute episodes over a two-year period.
