This page gives you an insight into what we do and what we pride ourselves on here at Tall Trees. Starting as a small yard looking for our own horses we are very selective in the horses we buy, you do not have to have to spend a fortune to enjoy and have the pleasure of owning a racehorse. On here we give you an idea of the horses we have bought, what they have done and the success they have been. Not only do we feel we can be of assistance finding horses, we have a very good track record for rejuvenating horses that have come from other yards and horses that have badly lost their way. Here are a few examples:

 

CASTLEMORRIS KING

5 time hurdle WINNER & 10 time placed rated 132 over hurdles

£12,500

 

MY BROTHER SYLVEST

Purchased for £3,500 after losing his way at David Pipes, winner first time out for us and a very close second the next time, already won his purchase price back in two runs!

 

CLEARLY CAPABLE

Bought privately for £7,500 from Ireland, having never even placed under rules before from many starts he was a WINNER FIRST TIME OUT FOR US, on his stable debut looking very impressive.

 

BLAINE

To show how much horses improve when joining us Blaine had not won for a year, had not won after a break since he made his debut at 2 and had not won of a mark as high since 2014 (May '17 now). Off 7 months, BOLTS UP FIRST TIME FOR US ON HIS STABLE DEBUT under FRANKIE DETTORI at Newbury winning a 30k handicap.

 

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY

Had not been sighted in the last year, on both the flat and over hurdles, finishing last in his last 5 runs. Finishes a close second on debut for the yard after only being here a month. Will improve fitness & confidence for next time.
