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!

November/December 2011

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.

November/December 2006

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.

September/October 2006

Racehorse Rehoming
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!

June/July/August 2006

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!

September/October 2004

Middleham Park Racing
Northern 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!

July/August/ 2004

Ben Hanbury
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 viewing!

May/June 2004

Algarve Bloodstock
Described 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)

March/April 2004
A 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 (jockeys, stallions, trainers...). You can easily search for the latest race entries or remind yourself of ANY French Black-Type race result - it's all there!

March/April 2001

Martin Pipe
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

January/February 2001

Coolmore Stud (IRE)
Leading owner 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

November/December 2000

The 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

September/October 2000

Edward Dunlop
Ed 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

July/August 2000

The Racecourse Association
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

May/June 2000 (now closed)
Bright, fun and lively forum for all matters British and Horsey, which has fast become a Bookmarking must. The Racing section features up-to-the-minute and chatty news articles, and hosts pages for leading trainers and jockeys. Model design, navigation and speed of access make the site a winner

April 2000

Sporting Life
A recent graphic makeover has enhanced the clarity and visual appeal of this internet stalwart, for so long the mainstay of racing and sporting news, information and comment on the web. It remains an indispensible UK and international resource

March 2000

Famous Racehorses
Steve Parrott's tribute to great equine stars, past and present, is a joy. Choice and treatment is a good mix of the indispensable and idiosyncratic, site design is unfailingly pleasing and clear. A true browser's delight.

Feb 2000

Racing Post
Relaunched, free-subscription site which has swiftly become a cornerstone of the British racing scene. Elegant, clear, no-frills design enhances the value of this data-rich resource.

Jan 2000

Mark Wilkinson
Elegant site for trainer, offering video clips of schooling gallops to owners, plus other innovative web features. Well worth a visit
