We are very lucky to have the daily use of a newly resurfaced 5 furlong Eco Track Gallop supplied by Martin Collins. Since having the Gallop changed to Eco Track it has been exposed to a variety of weather conditions from heavy rainfall, hard frosts, and inches of snow. I am pleased to report that not one element has prevented us from using the gallop – the surface is exceptional.
The gallop, gradually climbing 150 feet, has produced notable winners over distances varying between 2 to 3 miles including:
CHELTENHAM CHAMPION BUMPER – 2013 2ND
CHELTENHAM CHAMPION HURDLE – 2012 WINNER
Rock On Ruby
CHELTENHAM FOXHUNTER WINNERS
Fantus (1995 & 1997)
AINTREE FOXHUNTER WINNERS
AINTREE MARES STANDARD OPEN NH FLAT RACE – 2012 WINNER
Eleven Fifty Nine
WELSH NATIONAL WINNER
GRAND NATIONAL, 5TH
Running parallel to the famous Seaborough gallop on the other side of the lane is a schooling ground with lines of hurdles and steeplechase fences. We like to school on the grass whenever possible, alongside our indoor school which is available to us in all weathers!
