PRESS RELEASE DATED 18/01/18

Mike Hammond has leased Lancashire Racing Stables on a temporary basis as a satellite yard.

Hammond, 51, first took out a licence in 2005 after riding 36 winners as an amateur rider both under Rules & in Point-to-Points. His biggest success came on Turn Mill in the prestigious Lady Dudley Cup (1990).

Mike, who is currently based at Abberley where he rents a yard, is the father of up and coming conditional rider Charlie who has ridden 17 winners so far including 11 this season. Mike will continue at his Worcestershire base but has been granted a temporary licence at LRS until the end of May & will split his time equally between the two sites over the next four & a half months. He will be assisted at his satellite yard by Stella Barclay who previously undertook a similar role to both Bruce Hellier (2010–12) & Richard Ford (2012–17).   

Set on the edge of the Forest of Bowland close to the market town of Garstang, LRS is one of just five racing yards in Lancashire and facilities include 30 acres of well-fenced grassland plus all the advantages of a thoroughly contemporary racing yard, including a covered horse-walker, fibresand exercise ring, 27 well-ventilated, spacious boxes plus a 5 furlong wood fibre all-weather gallop.
