Newlands Stables Upper Lambourn

About Principle Racing

Seamus Durack

Outstanding facilities based in Upper Lambourn

Principle Racing was formed in 2021 after the purchase of Newlands Stables

Newlands is one of most successful and best located yards in the Valley of the Racehorse.

Former jump jockey, Seamus Durack, is our employed trainer bringing over 10 years of experience in training flat and jumps winners on the Lambourn gallops. With 76 licensed boxes, Newlands Stables has every facility needed on site, including a 1 furlong oval warm up canter track, Claydon covered horse walker, 2 lunge & turnout pens, grass paddock and an equine treadmill.

In addition to our on-site facilities, we are also on the doorstep of over 500 acres of outstanding Jockey Club Estates maintained gallops. This includes 8 miles of turf gallops, 7 miles of artificial gallops, starting stalls and schooling grounds which are all within walking distance giving our horses a varied and enjoyable training regime.

Having discovered the use of statistics, performance data and new technology was not commonplace in what is a very traditional sport, our team set about doing things differently.

We focus on providing outstanding service to our owners. Fun, proactive updates, full use of modern technology to vary and optimise training methods and excellent value for money.
We also ensure that your horse has the highest possible standards of care combined with bespoke training programs.

Proven Track Record

We have a proven track record of purchasing winners and pattern performers

We identify top class prospects at reasonable prices which are undervalued by the market. We have made successful purchases privately and from the foal, yearling, breeze-up and horses in training sales. We are happy to pass on our knowledge and expertise to you to help you increase your chances of purchasing a top class performer.

Our purchasing strategy is always based on unique data on all key metrics which provides you with value for money and the opportunity to compete against leading owners for a fraction of the cost.

By maximising the quality of horse, we can purchase with your available budget and by utilising marginal gains to optimise training and racecourse performance, we significantly increase your chances of success.
By competing for increased prize money and adding value by improving horses, our strategy is to maximise your return on investment to continually improve the quality and enjoyment of your racing.

Success breeds success

Principle Racing was formed to allow us to pass on decades of racehorse ownership, training and breeding experience to maximise your success and enjoyment of being a racehorse owner or syndicate member.

We believe in providing a completely honest and transparent service which enables you to focus 100% on enjoying the fun and excitement of being involved in the horse racing industry.

We will fully involve you in the training process, with regular proactive updates, yards visits, reports, photographs and videos.

We have experienced significant success utilising marginal gains and modern technology which has enabled us to win Group races, Listed Races and top handicap races on a fraction of the cost of other owners and breeders.

Every horse deserves the best care and facilities

We are proud to provide our horses with the best of everything

Our stables are large and spacious with lots of natural light, ventilation & automatic drinkers. All horses enjoy the regular use of the equine treadmill, pulsed electromagnetic massage rug, lunge rings, wash-down area, weighing scales, Overlander horsebox, turnout pens and paddock.

We work with the best people and industry experts, from our excellent dedicated staff to our nutritionist, farrier, Mc Timoney practitioner, dentists and vets. We leave no stone unturned when it comes to making sure each horse has every opportunity to achieve its full potential.
