Many thanks to Lucinda Russell and all the staff at Lucinda Russell Racing, for being very community oriented and hosting some Men’s Shedders today at Arlary Stables.
We were welcomed by horse racing and trainer legends, Lucinda Russell OBE and Peter Scudamore MBE, and then introduced to their senior team.
Then after coffee and chat went off to enjoy the rare opportunity of watching the ‘gallops’ training session which was a sight to behold.
After arriving back at the stables for a cuppa and biscuits, we were off on a guided tour round the stables, tac room etc by head girl Ciorstaidh, who was a brilliant and entertaining guide!
A massive, military style operation is required to run this Grand National winning stables, which employs over forty staff. If your thinking of a career in this please get in touch with Lucinda.
We didn’t meet their 2017 Grand National winner ‘One For Arthur’ as he and ten more horses were away to the Kelso races today.
Our Shedders will be talking about this for a long time to come!
If your group or organisation is interested in seeing this, get in touch with them as they are an asset to the community!
