Introduction

Tudor Racing Stables are a real opportunity for the racehorse trainer, point to point handler or pre-trainer as it is well laid out, and has both pasture and gallops extremely close to the stables. For the past 10 years it has been the base for Sophie Leech, who has trained National Hunt horses to run both in Britain and in France. In the last year she has trained winners at the Dublin Racing Festival, Cheltenham and the most valuable handicap hurdle in France.

Location

Just off the A48, between Gloucester and Chepstow, Tudor Racing Stables are ideally placed for Chepstow and Cheltenham, with Hereford, Ludlow and Bath in easy reach. Just a few hundred yards to the A48, and only 8 miles from the dual carriageway, it is well placed for horsebox access. Trains from Gloucester to London take 1hr 45 mins.

Elton is in lovely rolling country between the Forest of Dean and the River Severn. Westbury on Severn is 1½ miles away, with a range of shops, a village school and a pub.
