While he was a student at Cornell University, where he was headed toward a career as a veterinarian, Brown worked summers for Hall of Fame trainer Shug McGaughey. By the time he graduated from Cornell, Brown had decided that he would rather train horses and continued working for McGaughey. Brown has had a meteoric rise to national prominence, winning with the first horse he started at Saratoga Race Course and his first Breeders' Cup starter, Maram, in 2008. In 2011, Brown earned his first Grade 1 victory, trained his first champion, Stacelita, winner of the Beverly D., and finished 16th nationally with $5.2 million in purse earnings. In 2012, Brown trained his second champion with Zagora, winner of the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf.

After the 2016 season, Chad Brown was named the Eclipse Award winner as outstanding trainer. In 2017, Brown won his first American classic race when his Cloud Computing captured the 142nd Preakness Stakes.
