A tour of Andrew Balding’s Parkhouse stables:
Starting bid: £100
You will be able to bring 3 friends/family with you for the chance of a lifetime to visit one of the top flat yards in the country! You’ll spend the morning watching the horses being worked at home on the gallops and then you’ll be given a tour of this fantastic yard where you’ll see not just how hard everyone works but how much the stable staff and riders love these horses. You’ll be able to meet some of the stable stars such as Spanish Mission and Bangkok (subject to which horses are around on this morning).
The winner of this ‘lot’ will also receive a special gift from Clare Balding (unfortunately Clare will be unable to give you this gift herself). An opportunity not to be missed!
The winner of the tour at a racing yard will be put in direct contact with the yard and it will be down to them to arrange a suitable date, COVID-19 permitting. You must acknowledge this prize may be on hold for some time due to the current climate, but rest assured it will definitely happen. It is down to you to arrange travel to and from Andrew Baldings yard in Newbury.
