Toby has many years of experience in the racing industry and has one of the most peaceful yards in Surrey at Henfold Stables
Born and raised in racing’s headquarters of Newmarket, Toby has been involved in one way or another with racing from an early age. He gained invaluable experience from some of the best in the business – James Eustace, Venetia Williams, Chris Wall, Neil King, and John Ferguson to name but a few!
Toby also went to Exeter University to study Human Biology before landing a job with his idol Nicky Henderson.
Assistant Trainer to Nicky Henderson
Nicky Henderson and Seven Burrows needs no introduction – they are very much well known in the racing industry! Toby landed the role as Assistant Trainer to Toby for 5 years and rode the likes of Altior and Might Bite at home. He was able to ride, observe and learn all the traits of training these athletes to perform on some of the biggest stages!
Toby has already enjoyed training plenty of winners! These days there is very often a meeting at the likes of Fontwell Park or Plumpton where Toby’s team are not celebrating a winner.
3-time winner and consistent performer Sublime Heights, Zacony Rebel and Mister Who are all but a few to name of Toby’s winning horses.
The Beare Green based stables is incredibly peaceful and picturesque and it is rich in history, having been the home to Rough Quest when he won the Grand National in 1996, alongside several Graded and Cheltenham Festival winners.
Henfold has plenty of grass and all-weather gallops, schooling grounds, turn-out paddocks and quiet wooded tracks which is perfect for a variety of horses.
The smaller set up also means a more individual attention approach to the horses too and we are hoping this change of scenery will be reignite Legal Rights’ enthusiasm!
