William Muir

Linkslade

Linkslade Stables have always been associated with turning out successful racehorses. Prior to William taking up residence, the formidable Stan Mellor trained from the yard which laid the successful foundations for which Linkslade have now become accustomed too.

In 1993 William and Janet moved into Linkslade – a yard that was steeped in history, but in need of some major investment and refurbishment. It wasn’t long before the facilities were taking shape – even the house had to be re-roofed! With the yard starting to fill up with horses, William knew deep down that it wouldn’t be long before Linkslade stables would be put back on the map where they truly belonged.

Prior to taking out his own license William gained valuable training experience working with Pat Taylor, R F Johnson Houghton, N Vigors and K Brassey.

With years of investment and commitment by William and his loyal team, it is easy to see why Linkslade stables now offer some of the best training facilities in the Lambourn Valley, whilst maintaining their commitment to owners and endorsing the fact that they operate a very friendly, family-run racing yard. With the commitment offered by William and his team, a Group 1 winner for Linkslade stables is not that far away.

Javelin  |  Chelmsford City

Last run proved to be a little disappointing the filly was drawn wide and dropped in meaning she lost interest. She's a filly that likes to go forward and with a better draw this time round and seeming to be in good form we are hopeful for a better run.

Sweet Jemima  |  Chelmsford City

She's a filly we had to stop and start with after buying her from the breeze ups due to some minor issues. We also gave her a wind op and got her fit fairly quickly before her last race. Jockey said she was outpaced early however she's shown us loads of pace at home. Now she is fitter and drawn well if she can jump out and travel we hope to see a better run from her.
