Lambourn Training Grounds

In January 2006 Jockey Club Estates took on the responsibility of managing over 500 acres of training grounds in Lambourn.

The purchase of the property by Jockey Club Estates was a significant development in that it represented the first time the company’s property portfolio had expanded beyond Newmarket.

  • 14 miles of turf gallops and artificial tracks
  • Lambourn is the home to more than 30 trainers
  • 500 acres of maintained training grounds
  • Open 7 days a week, 365 days per year
  • An average of 600 horses in training every month

Since 2006 Jockey Club Estates has invested heavily in the Mandown Gallops with two artificial gallops being completely re-laid, as well as a further two refurbished.

Encouragingly, since Jockey Club Estates took on the management of the public gallops in Lambourn the number of horses based in the village using the facilities has increased noticeably.

There are currently over 600 horses spread among over 30 trainers based in Lambourn using the facilities managed by Jockey Club Estates on a day to day basis. The facilities are also by used on a casual basis by up to 120 horses a month.
