New neighbour at Manton

Posted on Nov 10, 2017 in Latest News

I’m delighted that Martyn Meade and his team are joining me and my team here at Manton next year.  I came to Manton in 2006 and I still have to pinch myself on a daily basis to remember that my presence here is a reality, it is a wonderful place to live and train.

Recently, my fiancé Jax and I have agreed the purchase of both Manton Lodge and the Astor Yard and I am very grateful to Paul and Anne Clarke for giving me the opportunity to purchase my piece of racing’s most powerful set up.

Martyn has had a cracking year in 2017 and his operation is an exciting setup to have as a neighbour.  I’ve had so many incredible years here at Manton and I am looking forward to many more with an exciting and increased team of horses, owners and staff for next year.

Manton allows a trainer to partake and contribute on the international scene, business as usual.

2.55 – SPARK PLUG – He ran a great race last time out and steps back up to his preferred trip of 1m 2f this time. He has had a really good consistent season and is more than capable of running another competitive race. Pat Smullen takes the ride.
