Dr Richard Newland

Dr Richard Newland needs little introduction, he is one of the most successful smaller National Hunt Trainers in the UK.

The yard’s strike rate is second to none and shows a healthy profit year on year. If the Trainers Championship was decided on a runner to winner ratio, Dr Newland would be crowned champion trainer every time.

Richard intentionally has just 14 horses in training at any time, this ensures each horse receives one to one care and attention on a daily basis.

Despite being a smaller setup the list of big raced winners is endless with the likes of Burntoakboy winning the Coral Cup at the Cheltenham Festival and Overstrand picking up the prize for the £50,000 Ascot Betfair Hurdle. Dr Newland also landed the biggest prize of them all by training Pineau De Re to win the 2014 Crabbie’s Grand National, his first ever runner in the race.

We’ve also enjoyed great success with Richard and had some fantastic wins at some of the best meetings of the year. For example, our very own Gran Maestro won the big summer prize of 2015, The Betfred Summer Hurdle, Ebony Express won the £70,000 Imperial Cup and Audacious Plan The Durham National.

With the good doctor training for Value Racing Club, success is never far away.

Chris Wall

Chris Wall has trained at Induna Stables in Newmarket since 1992. Prior to that, Chris had a spell with Luca Cumani as his Assistant Trainer and also worked alongside Sir Mark Prescott in a similar role. His earlier education in the business was achieved alongside Barry Hills in Lambourn.

Induna Stables has room for 60 horses, Chris and his team are one of the smaller yards in Newmarket but provide the individual attentive service to every one of their horses ensuring they receive the best possible care at all times.

Big race wins are never far away, Premio Loco, Bounty Box & Wake Up Maggie are just a few named horses that won numerous Group races between them. Mr Wall is never far off having the best strike rate in the whole of Newmarket year after year.

We’re extremely pleased Chris is training for Value Racing Club at the home of flat racing in Newmarket.

David Pipe

David Pipe was tailor made to train racehorses. Son of Martin Pipe CBE, fifteen times champion National Hunt trainer, and the most successful jumps trainer in British racing history.  Since his father’s retirement from training at the end of April 2006, David has wasted no time putting his own name in the record books.

His first Cheltenham Festival winner came in 2007 when Gaspara won the Fred Winter. Since then nothing but success has come year after year. David has trained winners at every jumps track in Britain, trained a Grand National winner “Comply Or Die” and 14 Cheltenham Festival winners so far. Other big race victories, include the Hennessy Gold Cup "Madison du Berlais" and just for good measure a Royal Ascot winner "Junior" plus Chester Cup success on the flat have also been claimed.

 

David has now passed the 1,000-career winner mark and firmly established himself as one of the best trainers in the country. We are delighted to be involved with David Pipe and his team at Pond house stables and look forward to many great days out.

Alastair Ralph

Alastair’s family have always been involved in horse racing, this led to Alastair picking up the bug from a young age. After leaving school, Alastair rode out for Michael Scudamore before moving to Ditcheat and working for Paul Nicholls. Alastair’s parents have been long term friends with Dr Richard Newland, so the next logical step was to work and ride out for Dr Newland. During this time Alastair started the BHA courses and was offered the job of assistant trainer to Henry Daly. Five seasons was spent working for Mr Daly.

Alastair started training on his own in 2013 in the UK P2P field where he made an immediate impact. His first runner under rules came in 2015, followed by his first winner coming just a few months later. Alastair is still involved in P2P racing but is making the transition to under rules.

 

Results are very impressive and have come from just a handful of horses in training. Bob Ford won a £30,000 chase on his stable debut, Cut The Corner two wins and placed in valuable races, Seymour Star rated 108 when sent to Alastair, now a mid 130 horse and completed a three timer.

With the yards form and Alastair working extremely hard to make a name for himself, Value Racing Club are delighted to have a horse with this up and coming trainer.
