Stella Barclay - Trainer

A horsewoman of distinction and great experience, Stella is the new trainer at LRS after serving as assistant under Bruce Hellier (2010 - 2011), Richard Ford (2012 - 2017), & Mike Hammond (2018). She was granted her licence at the beginning of May & now it is all systems go in the quest for winners! A lifetime spent rearing, riding, racing and caring for horses and thoroughbreds gives Stella an excellent grounding for heading up Lancashire's top racing yard.

Her in-depth understanding of all things equine ensures that the thoroughbreds at Lancashire Racing Stables are not just well-trained but also cared for with excellence and devotion. Before LRS took over her life, Stella was a partner in Barclay Racing Services which provided a variety of services for racehorse owners including livery facilities for horses resting or out of training, the breaking in of young stock etc.

She also has her own band of broodmares and regularly attends bloodstock sales both in this country and in Ireland in her capacity as a Bloodstock Agent for LRS’s sister company, Lancashire Racing Bloodstock Services.
