Racehorse Rescue Centre
We have been rescuing racehorses for over 25 years, our first being Pistol Pukka aka Jojo who
won the White Swan Hurdle and from the yard of Gavin
Pritchard-Gordon. We set up in January 2011 as a small
charity after a year of being involved in the
world of racing and seeing a need for a rescue centre in
the North. We started to rescue racehorses in Cumbria and
the Borders and are now taking calls from
all over the UK. We will take other horses in need when we have
space. Our centre here handles all calls and horses come
here to be Vet checked and assessed, retrained then go on to foster
homes and grazing land that is donated to us. They stay
in the ownership of RRC for the rest of their lives.
Please visit their website and make a donation now!
National Trainers Federation (NTF)
The National Trainers Federation (NTF) is the professional body for licensed racehorse trainers in the UK, 94% of whom are members. It promotes their interests through representation in racings political corridors of power and by providing a range of services and publications.
The Federation's executive is based in Lambourn, one of the most famous training centres in the country.
Essex Racing Club
The Essex Racing Club has been formed with the objective of providing the enjoyment and benefits associated with racehorse ownership in the UK, without the high costs that result in individual ownership.
A nice, fresh-looking website with clear menus and links.
A rehabilitation Centre, dedicated to the future well being of the ex-racehorse. The slower more relaxed pace of country life has a wonderful effect of calming even the most highly strung athlete. There are many trainers and owners who are deeply concerned for the future of these horses, that have served them well over the years.
Nashwan Links is proud to have made a recent donation to this more than worthy cause, and we urge you to do the same!
John Ryan Racing
Young, ambitious, Newmarket trainer. Being a son of the highly acclaimed and successful trainer Mick Ryan, he boasts more than a decent pedigree!
Middleham Park Racing
based racing syndicate that's having another fantastic year.
Starting with one winner in 1995, they average 16 winners
over the last four years. That should easily be surpassed
this time around!
Revamped site with links to the latest news, list of
horses trained, latest syndicates etc. Ben has one of his largest and most
promising strings for many a year. Recommended
as an Anglo-French agency, manager Barry Root can justifiably
claim to be the only English agent in France. They also
have offices in Newmarket and the BBAG Sales in Germany
(for whom they are the UK representative)
FREE site with links to some of the top breeding farms,
trainers, racing clubs and bloodstock agents. There is a
complete French racing calendar, up to date racing statistics

for the latest race entries or remind yourself of ANY French
Black-Type race result - it's all there!
Martin Pipe didn't rush his fences to open a
website, but the wait has been worthwhile. Easy on the eye, easy to navigate,
and above all packed with useful information and lively, up to date news items,
this fine site is a model both as advert and information tool
and breeder John Magnier provides an introductory tour to the heart of
his glamorous, highly successful racing empire. A sleek operation mirrored by a
sleek and outstandingly designed site
only bad thing about racetips365 is its name, inappropriate for what is
an attractive information and advertising site. Lively opinion, full daily news
updates and stimulating, well-written features make this a most valuable
alternative to the establishment sites
Dunlop is one of the most likely stars amongst the younger generation, with two
classic winners already to his name. His site is something of a classic, too,
with full listing and photos of his string, search facility, pleasant
multimedia and full contact information - a real thoroughbred

Fixture lists, maps and plenty of good general
information on all 59 mainland racecourses and the work of the RCA itself make
this an invaluable resource for all UK Racing enthusiasts
