Why McPherson Racing?
At McPherson Racing both owner and horse receive a first-class, personal service. Despite providing an extremely professional and results-driven facility, we aim to maintain a friendly, informal atmosphere on the yard. Owners are welcome to visit and watch training sessions and are regularly updated on progress.
Rather than adopt a ‘one size fits all’ approach to training fees and ancillary costs, we prefer to offer tailored packages to suit individual owners. However, we are confident that our rates are extremely competitive and provide excellent value for money.
We often have horses at the yard that are available for lease or sale. If we have nothing suitable, we are always happy to help potential owners to find a suitable horse either privately or at the sales. We work closely with many leading bloodstock agents in England, Ireland and France to help locate and purchase the right horse at the right price.
We believe that communication is key. Every owner and syndicate receives regular video and telephone updates for their horse. In addition, a weekly video newsletter – The Martins Hill Mercury – is released throughout the season on the yard’s social media channels.
Our annual September Owners Day is an event not to be missed, and for many of our owners it now marks the start of the ‘proper’ jumps season each year. The parade provides an excellent opportunity to view the horses in advance of the season and to hear their racing plans, the stable tour gives visitors a chance to see ‘what’s new’ at the yard, and the lunch (and ice cream van !) provides the perfect opportunity for owners to renew old friendships and discuss the season ahead.
Owners are welcome to visit their horses at any time throughout the year, but Saturday Gallops mornings are especially popular with individual owners and syndicates alike. What better way to begin the weekend than by watching second lot on the gallops, enjoying a hearty breakfast and then having a stroll round the yard to inspect the horses ?
