Nicky began his training career in 1978, after being assistant to the legendary Fred Winter. He moved to the historic Seven Barrows yard with its private gallops in 1992 and has not looked back. The yard has excellent facilities and plenty of land around for the horses to relax when out of training or between races. It really is the perfect place to train.
He is legendary within National Hunt racing, with his stable stars regularly featured in the media during the 2017/18 season. Names that many will recognise, such as; Altior, Buveur d’Air, L’Ami Serge, Might Bite, Top Notch and of course the stable also has legends like the star chaser Sprinter Sacre on their CV! He has just reached the 3,000 career winners mark (31st July 2018), which is a marvellous achievement.
