Lambourn Training Grounds
First-class facilities in the Valley of the Racehorse
Set on the Berkshire Downs with its varied gradients and centuries old downland turf, Lambourn possesses all the attributes needed to prepare equine athletes and it is no wonder it has become known as the ‘Valley of the Racehorse’.
Jockey Club Estates has owned and managed over 500 acres of the Lambourn Training Grounds since 2006. Following significant investment and the addition of further gallops rented from adjoining landowners, Lambourn has re-established itself as a centre of excellence for training Thoroughbreds, with first-class facilities for Flat and National Hunt horses.
The facilities include eight miles of turf gallops and a wide range of recently renovated artificial surfaces of varying distance and gradient.
Since Jockey Club Estates took on the management of the training grounds the number of horses in Lambourn using the gallops on a daily basis has increased markedly with over 850 horses now trained in the village and up to 120 horses a month visiting Lambourn to use the gallops.
As well as the gallops, the investment by Jockey Club Estates has extended to a new parking area for visiting trainers and plans to enable the building of more yards and stabling in Lambourn.
