At the age of 26, Woodbine-based conditioner Steven Chircop sure has a wealth of racing experience.
“I started coming to the backstretch when I was nine and I got my first hot walker’s license when I was twelve. It’s been awhile, you know,” grinned Chircop as we chatted outside Barn 35 on the Woodbine backstretch.
Chircop has a handful of stalls in the barn he shares with his uncle,
longtime Woodbine trainer Tino Attard, and it is through this valuable
family connection that he felt those first sparks for the game.
