Benefits

Entering the Paddock at Carlisle Races

We want to give you the best ownership experience we can, whether that experience be at the yard or at the races. We are a small yard however, we have proven ourselves to be successful in training winners. The advantages of a smaller yard are many. For example, more care and attention paid to both horses and owners.

We use research based practices to ensure all aspects of our racehorses’ needs are met (see the Training and Facilities page).
