Racehorse Training Facilities

The Park has some of the best private racehorse training facilities in the North of England and its location, close to the M6 motorway and other major roads, ensures that a large number of racecourses are within easy travelling distance and that owners can quickly escape the hullabaloo to spend time with the horses, Martin Todhunter and his dedicated team.

There are 80 acres of grassland on good draining limestone incorporating a range of gallops as well as access to numerous bridle paths on hundreds of acres of heather moorland that provide a unique blend of exercise and relaxation to meet  each horse’s physical and mental requirements.

The yard includes 40 large airy boxes, two covered six horse exercisers and an indoor school. There is a 5-furlong uphill all weather gallop and a 10-furlong grass gallop. In addition we have schooling hurdles and fences and numerous turn out paddocks.

We are confident that our facilities compare favourably with any other yard in the North of England and beyond. We would welcome the opportunity to take potential owners on a tour of the yard and its facilities so please do contact or call us at any time to make an appointment to come and see them for yourself in the near future.
