Newlands Stables

Our first runner from Newlands Stables almost gave us a dream start with Phoenix Aquilus finishing 2nd narrowly beaten by only three quarters of a length over hurdles at Southwell.

The welcome we have received from the local community and fellow trainers has been exceptional and the horses have loved the variety of the training with their daily hack to and from the many outstanding turf and all weather gallops which are on our doorstep and fully managed by the Jockey Club.
