Horse Purchase

We often have horses immediately available for inspection and sale, see the For Sale page. We also love buying to order and sourcing quality horses who have the scope and ability to win races. We purchase both privately and at sales in the UK, Ireland, France, Germany and USA. Horses previously purchased by us include Cheltenham Festival winner Brindisi Breeze, Black type winners and placed horses Kerry Lads, Strong Resolve, Mirage Dore, Green Flag, Tap Night, Thorpe, Samstown and multiple winners Catch The Perk, Etxalar, Quito Du Tresor, Blenheim Brook, Kris Cross, One For Arthur, No Deal, Degas Art, Dotties Dilema, Kingswell Theatre, Final Assault. 

We also have some well run clubs and owner groups associated to the yard, and can offer shares of horses or racing club shares.

We have two excellent contacts in Ireland, two in France and one in the USA who specialise in finding horses with form and youngsters with scope. We like to purchase tough horses who can develop into useful chasers. We regularly visit Ireland and France and owners are welcome to accompany us to view a selection of horses for sale, and to attend point to points and race meetings.

Training Fees

Our training fees for full training are £40.50 per day, or £1,510 All Inclusive per month.  We offer generous discounts for those with multiple horses. Our transport fees are amongst the lowest at 75p per mile for owners covered by the 'Isle Of Skye Scotch Whisky' yard sponsorship. We have reduced fees for walking, conditioning work and out of training horses. All fees are subject to VAT but this can be reclaimed under the VAT Scheme.


We would be delighted to welcome you as an owner and to share the excitment of horse racing with you. Please email Lucinda to discuss your requirements, to arrange a visit to the yard and to see our facilities; details on the 'Contact Us' page.


We attend the major bloodstock sales and can view, assess, vet and purchase horses on behalf of prospective owners. If you would like to attend the sales with us to be part of the excitement of acquiring your new horse we can arrange catalogues, hotel accommodation and sales day advice.

Horses bought at sales and subsequently resold to stay in the yard are free of profit or sales day expenses incurred by us. They are subject to the sales company's commission, and VAT where applicable. Cost of transport and livery from time of purchase to time of resale will be charged.
