    The West Berkshire Racing Club will be visiting Dan Skelton & his team on Thursday, 28th March 2019. Start time: 09:45am. After the visit, we'll be visiting a local pub for brunch.

    Dan has worked with horses for his whole life and spent nine years as Assistant Trainer to Champion National Hunt Trainer Paul Nicholls. Now, with that invaluable experience under his belt, he has embarked on his own training career and concluded his first season’s training with 27 winners under his belt, including Willow’s Saviour’s memorable victory in the 2013 Ladbroke Hurdle at Ascot.

    The West Berkshire Racing Club are pleased to announce that we’ll be visiting Ralph Beckett and his team on Tuesday, 23rd April 2019. Start time: 9:45am for a 10am start.

    Ralph started as stable lad in 1989, spending a year in Australia working for Colin Hayes and others. He then did two seasons with Jimmy Fitzgerald, a summer in Belmont, New York, and two and a half years with Arthur Moore. After a season with Martin Pipe, he went to work for Peter Walwyn as his assistant in 1996.

    Ralph took over from Peter in 2000, training 105 winners from Windsor House in Lambourn. His best performer whilst there was the G3 Fred Darling winner Penkenna Princess, who was a short-head second in the 2005 Irish 1000 Guineas. Come On Jonny won The November Handicap the same year. Whitsbury Manor’s Landlord Chris Harper asked him to go there for the 2006 season, replacing David Elsworth, trainer of Desert Orchid and Persian Punch.

    After the stable visit, we’ll be visiting The White Horse in East Cholderton for brunch.

    The application form for this stable visit will be in February’s newsletter.
