Our recently purchased yearlings are doing well in their education, and have quickly progressed to being comfortable wearing a saddle.

Pictured here are our Havana Gold x Florett Colt (top) and Buratino x Diminish Colt (bottom).

They are both available for sale, full details on the horses for sale page.

Already Looks Like A Good Buy

The 2yo half sister to our Buratino yearling, Ha'penny Bridge, is already a winner. She was then a keeping on well close up 4th in a valuable 7f listed race at Leopardstown on Irish Champions Day last weekend. Looks a very good prospect going forward to her 3yo career.

This handsome chestnut, for sale, already looking well bought by Nigel and Jamie Piggott for £20000. Visit our for sale page to get involved!



Some great artistic talent on view from groom Belinda Johnson on the hind quarters as Athollblair Boy and Izzy go to post at Doncaster.

All but one of the horses in the race enjoyed a view of it as he ran his usual great race to finish second by a fast diminishing head!


Bashiba's Perfect Ten

Stable favourite Bashiba was back in the winners enclosure today, gaining his 10th career win under Rowan at Musselburgh.

That is 37 stable winners for the year so far, equalling our previous best number of flat winners trained in a season. Having raced for us in the past 7 consecutive seasons, there was no more fitting horse to do this than Bashiba.


A stressful time for the trainer as the stable staff prepare for an evening racing, swapping horses for Go Karts flying around the track!

Thankfully, there were no casualties, and the stable horses will be mucked out and ridden out as usual in the morning.

And only fair to point out that Rowan was the winner.


It is busy time at the stable this week, with plenty of activity at the sales looking to buy next years winners.

This new arrival, a chestnut colt by Mayson, is taking a peak around the stable door to greet some of his new stablemates arriving.

Or maybe he is just looking for his new owner?

It could be you!

His half sister Near Kettering has won twice in the last month, August 2019.


Patience Is A Virtue

The patience of owner David Aarons was rewarded when Flying Raconteur gained his first career win at Ripon this afternoon under Lewis Edmunds.

The now 5 year old gelding who never raced as a 2 year old, ran 3 times as a 3 year old, and missed his entire 4 year old campaign, was produced with a late run to stay on well and win by a length.


Northern Lyte wins again today at Beverley, well ridden by Faye.

She clearly enjoys the Beverley track and has been placed there on a few occasions this season, so winning there for the second time was well deserved.

That takes the season tally for the stable to 35.


Normandy Landed.

Norman has arrived at Newmarket before his race , and has everything crossed that the rain stays away.

Izzy Clifton is on board as he seeks his 7th career win. This partnership have been 3rd and 2nd on their 2 previous attempts, and hoping to go one better this evening.

Having had a kiss from Helen as he begins his pre race relaxation, he is already a winner!
