Induna Stables is being offered for sale as a result of Chris Wall's decision to retire from training. This well placed yard on the Bury Side has direct access to gallops via the Rayes Lane horse walk. It is perfect for the trainer wishing to operate from a base that does not require further investment.
On the Bury Side, about half a mile up the Fordham Road , Induna Stables is well located. With its own access to the Rayes Lane extension horsewalk, its takes 12 minutes to get to the Severals on a horse.
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; farriers and services for every aspect of racehorse training and breeding. There is excellent access to the A14 and A11 (M11) - Stansted Airport is 32 miles away and Cambridge and Ely have direct trains to London.
Part of the original Kremlin Stables, Induna was purchased from Teddy Lambton in 1969 by Jeremy Hindley, who added to the yard and built the trainer's house. Under Hindley's ownership the yard produced many good horses in the 1970s, including: The Go-Between, (Cornwallis Stakes, 1972); Some Hand (Prix de Meautry, 1972); Blessed Rock (Hyperion and Seaton Delaval Stakes, 1973); Northern Princess (Ribblesdale Stakes 1974); and Coed Cochion (Queen Alexandra Stakes 1976).
The current owners, Chris and Carole Wall, purchased the property in 1992 and have had success winning The Prix de l'Opera in 1996, the Yellow Ribbon Stakes at Santa Anita and the Matron Stakes at the Curragh, all with Donna Viola. Missed Flight, Premio Loco and Double or Bubble provided other notable Group successes. The Walls have continued to run Induna very efficiently and have enjoyed much success in Group and Listed Company over the last 30 years.
Carefully developed and maintained by the Walls for the past 30 years, Induna Stables is a compact and proven training yard in turn key condition. Comprising 62 boxes in both traditional stables and barns, it is well placed on the Fordham Road to access the Bury Side training grounds. The yard is well equipped with paddocks and other facilities and the trainer's house, previously a pair of bungalows also contains the office and a reception area for visiting owners.
Originally a pair of bungalows, Nos. 1 and 2 Induna Stables have been occupied as an office and single dwelling in recent history. Accessed over a lawned garden with mature flower beds, the house is 2,286ft2 and is a Colt house of timber construction under a tiled roof. It has been well maintained, with the windows being completely replaced in the last few years.
The entrance is into a good-sized office with its own kitchen facilities, eventually leading to a sitting room with French doors to a terrace. There are three bedrooms and two family bathrooms. Beyond is the kitchen, dining room and utility room.
If necessary, it would be simple to divide the house to recreate a pair of cottages.
By the entrance is the former garage, now a store, which should be possible to turn into the trainer's office if it needs to be separate from the house.
The spacious car park, with a loading ramp and room for 20 vehicle, leads to the yard accessed through a gated entrance. The main yard has a grass island at its centre with two mature cherry trees.
