Our extensive facilities provide your horse with an excellent environment to develop. We like to turn our horses out regularly to relax, take a pick of grass and to chill out a little. We have extensive turn-out paddocks for this purpose.
Our grass gallops known as “Flaxley”, where three Grand National winners were once trained, are on the edge of Cannock chase with views over Staffordshire and Derbyshire. Here we have a selection of uphill gallops from four furlongs to seven furlongs on well-drained and well-kept turf.
Close to the yard we have a 2-furlong sand canter ring and a newly surfaced 4-furlong “Mactac” all-weather gallop.
EXTENSIVE SCHOOLING FACILITIES
We have schooling hurdles and fences. Reg was a jump jockey and he really enjoys NH racing.
Living on-site, enables Hollinshead Racing to provide closer care and attention to the welfare of the horses.
