Highclere Castle was transformed from a red brick Tudor house into the grand turreted castle that we know today by the 3rd Earl of Carnarvon in 1838. A time when the young Queen Victoria had just come to the throne and the whole decade witnessed innovation in politics and cultural life. The castle epitomized the confidence and glamour of the Edwardian period with visitor books recording the house parties full of politicians, technological innovators, Egyptologists, aviators and soldiers. The castle is now home to Harry’s older brother Geordie and wife Fiona, the 8th Earl and Countess of Carnarvon, and of course is famous around the world for its starring role in the award winning television series Downton Abbey.

Our most exclusive syndicate this year combines Highclere’s principal trainers Sir Michael Stoute and William Haggas. Year in, year out the ten-time Champion Trainer Sir Michael Stoute works his magic and unleashes our next middle distance star and with three out of our seven champions emerging from his stable it is no wonder that he remains one of our most sought after trainers. William and his wife Maureen have developed an impressive training establishment in the heart of Newmarket and their tireless commitment was reflected last year in what proved to be their best season to date. Seven Group victories culminated in Rivet’s pillar to post triumph in the Racing Post Trophy (Gr 1) and a record total of 137 winners were delivered at an impressive strike rate of 23%.
