I've been out of the game a few years and my old contacts have disappeared. I have my eye on a yearling, out of a horse I owned. However, I'd need to kep it somewhere for around 10 months and feed it, keep it safe, sound & healthy before I send it to a racing stable. What's the typical cost for that? Am I ok to send it to any old livery yard or do I need to use a racing stable etc.

Secondly, I'd like someone with a good 'eye'  to run the rule over my prospective purchase before I wade into the sales ring, I have a good history as a 'picker' but in the past I've always bunged someone a 'drink' for an opinion. As I said, I don't have those contacts anymore so how would I go about that?

Appreciate any thoughts or help..

UK or Ireland?

Am buying the horse in Ireland, the plan would be to bring it back to the UK to race but I'd consider leaving it in Ireland if it were cheaper until it was getting ready to train

FC I keep my horse in Ireland in the off months and have him pre-trained there before racing him in the UK.  It's a lot cheaper that way.  If you drop me an email to I'll give you the details of who I use and the costs.
