Weathercock House is steeped in racing history having previously been home to equine stars including three Grand National winners and two Cheltenham Gold Cup Winners. We have 79 boxes in the 3 separate square yards and ample turnout consisting of 20 individual turn out paddocks. Other facilities include horse weighing scales, horse walker, heart rate monitors and access to a salt water equine spa.
Weathercock House also boosts a private 3.5f oval excercise ring. Based at the foot of the Lambourn Jockey Club gallops on Mandown we have unlimited access to a vast range of different gallops. Ranging from a flat 8f gallop to a steep uphill 4f gallop, all on the best artificial surfaces. They also include some beautiful grass gallops, which are spectacularly maintained by the Jockey Club.
Here at Weathercock House our fantastic facilities are not just for the horses. There is a lovely purpose built owners room to entertain guests where Richard and Lizzie are the most generous hosts.
Stuart Messenger heads up the team as Head Lad. His expertise and knowledge is second to none. Patrick MacEwan is Richards Assistant Trainer. Frankie Amatt is our Travelling Head Girl, she overseas all the race day operations. In the office we have the Racing Secretary Rose Osborn and PA Becky Ward, both are always available for any inquiries you may have. We also have an excellent team of stable staff including very capable riders, three apprentices and three yard men. Lots of work goes on behind the scenes to get the horses to the racecourse, credit must go to everyone that works at Weathercock House Stables.
