"Balmoral has pre-trained yearlings for our stable for the last two years. The yearlings are backed, pre-trained and schooled in a very professional manner and are ready for early pace-work when reaching the Racing Yard. We are updated on a regular basis as to their progress at the farm. "

Duncan Howells


"The first time I sent a handful of yearlings to Balmoral, I was immediately impressed with Nicola and Marcís attention to detail and their facilities. It was a real pleasure to see bedding piled so high in the boxes, clean boxes and immaculately turned out staff and horses. The horses have come in well-mannered, with a good attitude and carrying just the right amount of condition. I could not be happier."

Joey Ramsden


"We had fantastic results sending our yearlings to Balmoral. They arrived in our yard very well schooled and able to go straight into work, looking magnificent.  We highly recommend them as a pre-training facility"

Herman Brown Stables

"We have been sending horses for the last couple of years to Balmoral Ė the horses return to our stables in great condition! Nicola and Marc are a pleasure to work with and run an amazing pre-training and resting facility."

Lucky Houdalakis

"Balmoral had a first class consignment [November 2012 BSA ReadytoRun] and I enjoyed comparing notes with Nicola and Marc.  We all want to achieve as close to perfection as we can in this specialist activity"

"Nicola and Marc have raised and pre-trained several of our babies at Balmoral including Bob 'n weave, Listed 4 times winner and Fairview course record holder.  We have nothing but good to say about their work.  The horse are well handled and prepared for their life in a racing yard".

" It was a breath of fresh air to deal with people who were honest and forthcoming in their business dealings.  I would have no qualms recommending your farm to others.  Thank you".

"We are very happy and proud to have supported Balmoral's operation since their Day 1.  There is nothing in the country to compare with their ability to pre-train and to produce horses for Ready to Run Sales and it clearly shows in results!"
