Küblers are first husband and wife training team
Claire Kübler is the latest addition to the training ranks as she officially joins Daniel to become the first husband and wife team to hold a joint license since the BHA introduced training partnerships.
Cambridge University graduate Claire grew up on her parents’ stud farm and qualified as an accountant with PriceWaterhouseCoopers before returning to her roots in the racing world. Working for several leading trainers and bloodstock
agents before setting up Kubler Racing with Daniel.
The pair have always worked together, so it’s very much business as usual. Starting out with just six horses they have grown the business to around thirty five horses.
The couple train from Sarsen Farm in the heart of Upper Lambourn, a stunning yard they designed and developed. Their first year at Sarsen Farm in 2019 was their best yet and the team have made a good return to action since racing has resumed.
“Training winners is a team effort, a joint license goes some way to reflecting that.” said Claire “We’ve got a great team of horsemen and women at Sarsen Farm and we enjoy working together with owners to give them the success and the excitement they are looking for.”
Teamwork is very evident at Kubler Racing, earlier this year they won the Lycetts Team Champion Award. The award celebrates and rewards racehorse training yards that develop a high performance team using the highest standards of employee management. “It reflects the quality of our team and how hard they work together” said Daniel “We put a substantial amount of effort into
developing our team, this means every horse receives the highest quality care.
“We’ve been keen to operate as a training partnership since we started out. We floated the idea a while ago on social media and received a positive response that led to the BHA getting in touch. We worked closely with the BHA and the NTF to get the concept off the ground. We would particularly like to thank Henry Bradley at the BHA for going above and beyond to make this happen.”
The couple aim to start with a bang this weekend. They have runners on both days at the King George meeting at Ascot. Impressive maiden winner Bowland Park heads for the Listed Pat Eddery Stakes for two-year-olds on Saturday and seven time winner Chitra will take her chance in the fillies handicap on Sunday. While stable stalwart Outrage will bid
