I have carefully considered NH trainers located all across the UK and I decided I wanted to work with an ambitious young trainer with potential to improve over time.
Henry Oliver has impressive statistical records after only a few years training he has hit the 100 winner mark already with our own horse Casual Cavalier hitting this milestome for Henry at Newcastle this season. Henry has also developed facilities that provide the very best training experience for national hunt racehorses.
The stable is located in rural Worcestershire on a hillside setting. The climate and natural environment being ideal for keeping racehorses relaxed, happy and in the best of equine health.
Henry Oliver like many trainers started out as a professional jockey and is a very capable horseman with plenty of experience prior to starting his training career a few years ago. Henry was stable jockey and Assistant Trainer to Sue and Harvey Smith up North and you can see from how he trains and turns out his chase runners in particular that this valuable experience has been passed on.Martin Gray Racing has already enjoyed impressive success with our past club race horses such as CHICAGO OUTFIT who completed his fifth straight handicap chase win at Hexham for club members including one in a class 3 race. WHAT'S UP WOODY, won four races and placed eleven times. WOODY also finished third in both the Yorkshire and Highland nationals in 2015. CASUAL CAVALIER our current club racehorse has won twice, placed 2nd and has two 4th place finishes after only 5 runs for MGR. GRAYS CHOICE won his bumper at AYR by 24 lengths and our first ever club horse ROMANY RYME won at Carlisle and placed nine times. We have also had many well attended open days and tasted the champagne in the winning owners lounge no less than thirteen times.
