A former top jockey of the 1930s to 1940s, Tommy Dawson is rated by many as one of the best small team trainers ever produced in Australia. Dawson is best remembered for the prolific winners Charlton Boy and Ima Shadow. He rarely had more than a dozen horses in work but always had a good "bread and butter" horse who usually got through to open company. Charlton Boy was one of Tommy Dawson's best horses

His best horses were Charlton Boy (Doomben 10,000, QTC Sires', QTC Guineas, QTC Toorak Handicap, J.T. Delaney Quality, Brisbane Handicap, Goldmarket Handicap [2], AJC Tramway Stakes, Captain Cook Stakes), Ima Shadow (J.T.
