Michael Dilger is a Thoroughbred racehorse trainer in the USA, operating stables in New York and Florida. Michael prepared for his career by spending seven years as Assistant Trainer to six-time Eclipse Award-winning American trainer Todd Pletcher after graduating Godolphin Flying Start in 2005. In 2013, Michael went out on his own as a licensed trainer, and experienced quick success. He saddled his first winner, Wired Bryan, for Anstu Stables at Belmont Park on June 19, and that horse provided him with his first Graded stakes win as a trainer when taking the G2 Sanford Stakes at Saratoga. Since then Michael has enjoyed continued success at the highest level.
