Impressive Richard Fahey stats so far in 2018 *story updated 13th April*

Wed 11 Apr 2018

We do love our stats here at MPR and have been alerted by our resident 'statto' that there's a trainer who is providing us with some numbers worth sharing!

Currently lying 6th in the Trainers' Championship (!?type=flat), RICHARD FAHEY has had 15 winners so far this year-four are Middleham Park Racing owned.

We have sent 18 runners out from Musley Bank:

4 of those have won: Ballymore Castle, Ventura Gold, Right Action and Ventura Dragon (pictured). In fact, they were doubles!

7 have placed second (including I Was Only Joking three times, with another this week!)

and Ventura Gold also had a 3rd place finish yesterday.

That gives our partnership performance of a 1st to 3rd strike rate to runners of 67%.

Syndicate manager Tom says "We love working with Richard. The reports we receive about their home work help me to place them to best effect and Richard will also throw in a suggestion of a race, so between us we choose the best options. Our owners then reap the benefits.

Richard saddles our first 2 year old runner tomorrow at Chelmsford in Piccothepack and we are very excited about our new string for the season ahead. The Dragon Pulse colts are favourites of mine as we love the sire and his stats this year have been noteworthy, with 10 winners from 25 runners this year. Our own aforementioned Ventura Dragon cementing our faith in his progeny."

We have our second biggest string of horses placed with Richard. It's a partnership that works and when he came up to chat to our owners in our box at Doncaster on Lincoln day, he made us all laugh when asked about how our 2 year olds were doing, when he said "Believe me I have already had to make the awkward call to connections of some 2yo's, but none of yours come into that category!"

We are holding an exclusive stable visit at Musley Bank on the morning of Saturday 12th May. Do join us to meet the team and see our string of 16 horses working on the gallops. Email to book your place. See the shares that we have available here:

If you would like to know more about any of the horses shown email Tom at or give him a call on 07909 915079.

*Update- A very pleasing debut 2nd place from PICCOTHEPACK last evening takes the Musley Bank/MPR horses to place 1-3 to 68% and also nicely moved our race prize money to over £100k in 2018.*
