Meet Our Trainers
We are doing awesome things at the moment, a lot of that is down to the tireless efforts from our huge team of trainers.
Henry De Bromhead
Henry is one of the top trainers in the UK and we are delighted to have horses in training with him. A stellar 2016/2017 season confirmed his profile in no uncertain fashion. Henry sent out 75 individual winners, five at Grade One level. Among those Grade Ones was Special Tiara, who gave Henry his fourth Cheltenham Festival winner when winning the Queen Mother Champion Chase. In 2018 the yard celebrated winning the Ryanair Chase at Cheltenham with Balko des Flos and have had continued success
Alex is a superb horseman. His knowledge of racing and his superb ability to get the best out of our horses is a big factor in why we trust Alex to train our horses but also assist in the breeding of our own horses. Alex strongly believes that owning a racehorse, whether as a sole owner or as part of a syndicate or partnership, should be an enjoyable and rewarding experience. All owners are actively encouraged to enjoy the training programme in addition to the adrenalin rush experienced when their horse visits the racetrack!
Ian’s objectives are simple - improve the quality of the string and continue to saddle winners. He achieved a lifetime ambition on 15th March 2016 when Ballyalton gave him his first Cheltenham Festival winner. Having run so well to be 2nd to the mighty Faugheen in 2014, it was appropriate that Ballyalton should give him his first 'gold medal'.
When Brasted won at Chelmsford on 15th October 2015, Ian completed a full set of saddling a winner at every racecourse in the UK - a unique achievement in modern training!
Mick Easterby has sent out thousands of winners on the flat and over jumps, establishing himself as a legend of northern racing. With an eye for bloodstock that is second to none and respected across the industry, Mick has become a firm favourite with generations of racing fans across the country.
During Adrian's career as a jockey, all the time he was learning different ways of training horses which is standing him in good stead for his career as a trainer.
Alex ensures that each horse is treated as an individual. The size of the yard allows Alex to ensure that each horse has a bespoke training plan that she personally manages, to ensure that every horse maximises their potential.
Ivan has seen plenty of success in his short career in the UK. He really knows how to get the best from the horses in his care.
It was always Hugo’s ambition to be a trainer. He has had a passion for horses since a young age and is undeniably a natural horseman. He grew up in Normandy and rode out daily for his uncle Julien Merienne where he later returned as a jockey.
Since starting training, Ben has gone from strength to strength. A small yard with the capacity for 40 horses, each horse is guaranteed individual care and attention, something that can never be undervalued with these finely tuned athletes!
