ANTHONY JONES If you did not know what I’ve been up to since giving up training, for the last two years I’ve worked for race tech as a stalls handler in the summer and breaking in horses in the winter. This winter I will manage a new yard at Lambourn Woodlands. The new facilities include a full size indoor school, horse walker, individual turn out paddocks and use of excellent gallops. If you are buying yearlings or about to buy, please feel free to come and have a look round at any time. Whether you need isolation time, resting or breaking I would be happy to help you.
