Jim Griffiths had a majestic record as a trainer but it would have been even better had he not had an aversion to flying. It meant he often lost some of his better horses to the south. However, he is the only post war Queensland trainer to have won the Brisbane big four – Stradbroke, Doomben 10,000, Brisbane Cup and Doomben Cup.
He originally trained on the Downs but moved to Brisbane before spending the last 15 years of his training career on the Gold Coast. His top horses included Spedito (Stradbroke, Doomben 10,000), Cachondeo (Brisbane Cup, QTC Metropolitan , Gold Coast Cup, Barnes Plate, Labour Day Cup), Knee High (Doomben Cup, June Handicap), Golden Khan (Doomben Cup, Queen's Cup), Lord Penn (Ascot Handicap), Our Horizon (Meynink Stakes, Cola Cola Stakes, Gold Nugget Stakes, STC Skyline Stakes), Bogan Rea (Healy Stakes, Goldmarket, AJC Clissold Stakes), Chateauroux (Ross Stakes, Murphy Quality, BTC Newmarket), Desert Beau (Claret Stakes, Gold Coast Cup, Summer Cup, BTC June Handicap), El Karpe (Bernborough Handicap, Labour Day Cup, Carnival Handicap, Recognition Stakes), Emborne (Goldmarket Handicap ), Gypsy Kingdom (King George IV Stakes), Havaspot (Eye Liner Stakes), Justincase (Goldmarket, O'Mara Stakes), Ngaruawahia (Ascot Handicap , Albion 2000), Val Carolyn (Eye Liner Stakes), Wine and Song (Weetwood , BTC Newmarket, QTC Bribie Handicap), Red Rancher (Meynink Stakes, Magic Millions Prelude Stakes), Booberanna (Queensland Cup), Cool Report (Tourist Minister's Cup), True to Label (Meynink Stakes), Tattwood (Meynink Stakes), Our Today (QBBS Stakes), Marnie's Girl (Orlando Classic) and Queenstar (McDougall Stakes) and Starmaker (Recognition Stakes).
