Harry Fry became one of the youngest trainers in the country when he launched his career in October 2012 following five years as assistant to the multiple champion National Hunt trainer Paul Nicholls. Chiefly in charge of Nicholls’ satellite yard at Seaborough in Dorset for his mentor Richard Barber, he was widely and deservedly credited for preparing Rock On Ruby to win the Champion Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival in 2012. Forward planning, attention to detail and a single minded determination to succeed saw him swiftly establish himself as one of the brightest young training talents in the industry. Harry Fry operates from his new purpose-built yard at Higher Crockermoor Farm near Dorchester, Dorset, and is justly proud of his excellent and extensive facilities.
Already the trainer of 3 Grade 1 winners in Bitofapuzzle, Unowhatimeanharry and If The Cap Fits.
Harry trains Whitehotchillifili, Ree Okka, Neon Madonna & our as yet un-named Blue Bresil filly.
Jamie nurtured a passion for racing from an early age through Pony Club, hunting, and Point to Pointing. Whilst at Radley College, Jamie rode out for Nigel Twiston-Davies, and during his gap year he worked as an Assistant Trainer for a flat yard in New Zealand. He continued to ride work for many trainers while at Newcastle University including Sue Smith and Chris Grant. As a Captain in the Kings Royal Hussars he rapidly became the first choice of trainers seeking a telling advantage in the annual military races each spring at Sandown. He rattled up four triumphs in the Grand Military Gold Cup and a further four in the Royal Artillery Gold Cup. I imagine his proudest moment in the saddle came when he carried the late Queen’s colours to victory on First Love in a race at Sandown in 2006, run in memory of her mother. Jamie progressed to achieve around sixty pointing wins and a further forty winners under rules as a much in demand amateur.
After a season as pupil assistant for champion trainer Paul Nicholls, Jamie then worked for three seasons as assistant trainer and amateur jockey for Nicky Henderson before branching out on his own in 2008. He began with one horse, one member of staff and a bucketful of dreams at a rented yard in Ebbesbourne Wake, a remote Wiltshire village. Those first three seasons delivered a respectable total of twenty wins but by now Jamie was impatient for more. Conscious that he needed better facilities to enhance his career he took the bold decision in 2011 to leave Wiltshire and buy Folly House in Lambourn, the historic yard where Cheltenham Gold Cup winners have been trained. Jamie has trained over 360 winners including two Cheltenham Festival winners.
Jamie trains our 4-y-o filly Walking It Off.
Jane has her yard at Culverhill Farm, near South Molton, Devon, and has only been training in her own name for the last couple of years but was formerly training with her husband, Nick, and had a very successful team of horses in training. Her yard is set in 100 acres of rolling Devon countryside and has an excellent 5 1/2 furlong all weather gallop which climbs about 400' from start to finish plus a flat all weather gallop and grass gallops. She turns horses out in the paddocks every afternoon and believes they benefit from a regime of natural goodness and relaxation. Living on the edge of the moors she often takes her horses there where they enjoy a wonderful change of scene Although Jane has only been training in her own right for a relatively short time, from a total of 393 runs she has had 53 winners and 89 placed horses, a very impressive record.
Jane trains In Rem, Despereaux & Castelfort and we look forward to lots of success with them.
