Historically two separate training yards, the current owners have developed a state-of-the-art training or pre-training yard incorporating the two yards into one. 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 and Craven House is superbly sited close to the access to the Jockey Club Estate Racecourse Side training grounds. There is also direct access from Shadowfax onto Hamilton Hill, the 3½ furlong Polytrack canter.

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.


Finished to the highest standards, the two training yards are operated as one.

The lower yard, known as Shadowfax Stables, has the following:

• A stables barn of 33 boxes and 4 additional veterinary boxes.

• 3 horse walkers; two 6-bay and one 10-bay.

• A bungalow which has been used as offices and tack rooms, suitable for conversion back to residential. Approximately 1,512ft2.

• Extensive storage and workshops as well as a farrier's forge.

There is an all-weather trotting ring and track which connects the upper and lower yards.

Craven House has:

• 55 boxes in three courtyards with 2 veterinary or isolation boxes in addition.

• Veterinary examination and radiography facilities.

• The original Craven House, which has been converted to high-quality offices. Within this, there is a kitchen and staff canteen. Extending to around 3,224ft2, this has the potential to be converted back to a residential dwelling, subject to planning approval.
