February Flavour Finian O’Toole

Our chosen calendar picture for February being Finian O’Toole aboard Alderbrook Lad. Update on Fin, since his fall in November, causing serious injuries to his pelvis and bladder, Fin remains on the sidelines whilst he heals, he is currently awaiting further surgery in March to get him another step closer to returning to the saddle….


It was great to get back out on the track, sending our first runner Cornerstone Lad to Kelso in the Morebattle Hurdle, finishing a pleasing third for owner Mary Lofthouse and rider groom Tab Threadgall.

Only 5 days to go!

The whole team are right behind Ian in the support of his nomination for the Godolphin award. All fingers and hooves are crossed! #Godolphin stud and stable staff awards#ourIan


We would like to thank all of our owners and supporters with their patience and understanding of the recent closure to racing. We are delighted we can now get back on the track.

Racing remains on shutdown

Due to the Equine Influenza out break, racing remains on shut down. The BHA continue to up date us accordingly. Racing is hopefully going to re start on Wednesday. We would like to re assure you that all our horses remain fit and healthy and the usual training regime has not been interrupted.

Whilst temperatures continue to drop, Saturday and Sunday race fixtures at Wetherby and Musselburgh are forced to be off. Although the show still goes on back at home, the horses and riders are still out on the gallops.
