Based in Hetlandhill, Carrutherstown near Dumfries in Scotland. Iain has incredible training facilities including a 6 furlong all weather gallop with a gradual incline, a 1 mile circular grass gallop, 2 furlong all weather schooling lane, among many other top class facilities.
His experience as a jockey has helped him greatly in his training career. He has trained many big winners, most notably Nakeeta, who won the Ebor at York in 2017. Iain also has a great team of staff around him, to help deliver the highest quality of training for each and every horse in the stable.
Iain has done a fantastic job with our horses over the past few years and we are excited to keep working with him going forward.
Harvey Bastiman Racing is a small friendly-run yard in the heart of Yorkshire, in a small peaceful village, not far from the A1. The Bastiman's have trained a Group 1 horse to success and have a fantastic set of facilities including a variety of gallops, starting stalls and turn out paddocks.
Harvey takes over from his sister Rebecca that passed away in March 2021 and will be sadly missed by everyone. Harvey worked with Rebecca and with Robin before that , He knows all the horses he trains and we rate him highly.
We at LBL wish Harvey the best of luck as a trainer.
George together with his wife Candida have grown the business together over the past 8 years. The decision to take out a Licence to train racehorses in 2008 saw a massive sea change in both their lives. Their passion for the sport of horseracing, and their desire to see the business succeed at the highest level, has been a potent mix. By surrounding themselves with some exceptionally talented people, George and Candida have seen the business grow and flourish in recent times.
They are based at Robins Farm, which is a state of the art training facility situated in beautiful countryside on the Surrey – West Sussex border.
Fun will always be a priority for anyone who has a horse with Chris and Jenny Gordon, but don’t assume that this makes the pair any less ambitious. While only one name is allowed on the trainer’s licence, this is very much a partnership, and both are fiercely competitive, as they have been throughout long careers with horses.
The chance to rent an established thoroughbred training base with the scope to initially allow also for training point-to-pointers came up in 2007 when Brendan Powell vacated Morestead Farm Stables in Winchester. The opportunity was grabbed with both hands. They now own the property.
