The sale of Shadowfax Stables is a remarkable opportunity to purchase a very tidy training yard in a large site with 37 boxes, a cottage and ample storage. For the the past decade Shadowfax has been run with the adjoining Craven House as a pre-training centre for Godolphin. It is now available as a separate lot.  The yard is well laid out and efficient to run, with an array of veterinary and rehabilitation facilities on site. It is the ideal environment to educate young horses and to produce winners.


On the Hamilton Road, Shadowfax is superbly sited close to the access to the Jockey Club Estates' Racecourse Side training grounds. There is also direct access from onto Hamilton Hill, the 3½ furlong Polytrack canter behind the yard.

Newmarket is the headquarters of British horseracing and is the largest racehorse training centre in the country with facilities that include 2,500 acres of gallops and two racecourses. Newmarket is also home to Tattersalls, Europe's leading Bloodstock Auctioneers; outstanding veterinary practices and equine hospitals; and professionals that serve every aspect of training and breeding thoroughbreds.
