You are spoilt for choice with our Lambourn trainers

THE Lambourn Valley, situated in the north-east corner of Berkshire, is recognised as one of the major racehorse training centres in the country.

With its superb facilities and wide-ranging gallops covering in excess of 500 acres and with more than 30 trainers to choose from – your racehorse could not be in a better place whether it be a flat or National Hunt horse. Our new website is here to provide the latest information of the day-to-day goings on in Lambourn plus quotations from all the day’s runners from our trainers (when available).

There is also information and contact details for all our trainers; the history of training horses in Lambourn; where to stay; our annual Lambourn Open Day – which is held on Good Friday (March 30th, 2018) and all the latest news.

Today’s teasers…

“First run for us. Has been running consistently well in Jersey, winning the Champion Hurdle over there recently. Has settled in well for us and schooled well over fences. Hoping for a good round of jumping today to start him on his chasing career.”

Warren Greatrex, Cahill

“His recent form on the flat isn’t overly inspiring and he has not been much further than 7f on most of his starts so he will have to settle down and we will see if he can get the trip. He has jumped nicely at home.”

Nicky Henderson, True Companion

“Balmoral Castle doesn’t get out much these days. He is semi-retired and a decent lead horse at home but still needs to help out on the track from time to time. This will be the first time for a while he has not been apprentice/amateur ridden but we currently have no apprentice connected with the yard so Rob Hornby, who is a sympathetic type of rider and has ridden us 21 winners this year takes the reins. I suspect at the age of 9 the horse is not quite what he was a couple of years ago but I wouldn’t dare tell him that.”

Jonathan Portman, Balmoral Castle
