Sean Woods takes over at Shalfleet
Windsor Clive International, the bloodstock property specialists are delighted to announce the closing of the sale of Shalfleet Stables by Jeremy Noseda to Sean Woods. Sean Woods has recently returned from Hong Kong, and in the past owned La Grange Stables, now Ed Dunlop's base.
Shalfleet is a famous training yard in Newmarket's Bury Road with about 90 boxes. Jeremy Noseda has trained there with great success, including 14 Group and Grade 1 winners, most notably Sixties Icon in the St Leger, Araafa in the Irish 2000gns and St James Palace Stakes and Wilko in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile.
Sean Woods' timing is fortuitous as he will be spending the summer making alterations to the yard with the aim of receiving horses in the autumn of 2020 by which time hopefully the current hiatus will be over.
George Windsor Clive, who negotiated the sale says:
"We had some serious approaches for Shalfleet however, Sean Woods was the most focussed of them. It is good to see a yard going into such capable hands - it augurs well for the future of one of Newmarket's best placed yards".
