Nicky Henderson OBE
"It has been a pleasure to train for Middleham Park Racing which must be one of the most successful and professionally run syndicates in British racing. The dedication to and knowledge of both Flat and National Hunt Racing is second-to-none and, with so many lovely people involved and a huge number of very talented horses, it is easy to see why they are so successful."
Nicky Henderson was crowned Champion Trainer for the sixth time for the 2019/20 season and we are delighted to be associated with the Seven Barrows team.
Nicky began his training career in 1978, after being assistant to the legendary Fred Winter. He moved to the historic Seven Barrows yard with its private gallops in 1992 and has not looked back. The yard has excellent facilities and plenty of land around for the horses to relax when out of training or between races. It really is the perfect place to train.
He is legendary within National Hunt racing, with his stable stars regularly featured in the media and at all the best racing festivals. Names that many will recognise, such as; Altior, Buveur d'Air, Epatante, L'Ami Serge, Might Bite, Shishkin, Top Notch and of course the stable also has legends like the former star chaser Sprinter Sacre on their CV! He reached the 3,000 career winners mark in July 2018, which is a marvellous achievement.
We look forward to some more exciting days racing as well as visiting Seven Barrows to see our string - days that owners make sure they keep their diaries free for, as Nicky's hospitality is legendary!
