Henry Oliver and Richard Hobson
I have very carefully considered NH trainers located all across the UK and decided I want to work with the best of already well proven young trainers with potential and ambition to continually improve their strike rate for owners.
Henry Oliver and Richard Hobson both have impressive statistical records after only a few years training and have developed facilities that provide the very best training experience for national hunt racehorses .
The stables are located in real training hot spot geographical areas in Worcestershire and in the Cotswolds both on hillside settings. The climate and natural environments in both locations being ideal for keeping racehorses relaxed, happy and in the best of equine health.
Henry Oliver and Richard Hobson like many trainers started out as jockeys and are both very capable horseman with decades of experience prior to starting their training careers 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. Richard is already a graded winning trainer and successful bloodstock agent who has spent his life surrounded by thoroughbred horses, in addition Richard has spent time living, riding and working in France.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 including one in a class 3 race. WHAT'S UP WOODY, winnng four races and placing eleven times. WOODY finished third in both the Yorkshire and Highland nationals in 2015. GRAYS CHOICE winning his bumper at AYR by 24 lengths and our first ever club horse ROMANY RYME winning at Carlisle and placing nine times. We have also had many well attended open days and tasted the sweet champagne in the winning owners lounge no less than eleven times.
