Welcome to Paul Nicholls Racing
10 Times National Hunt Champion Trainer
Welcome to our website with in-depth detail on all aspects of our training operation here at Ditcheat. So much has happened since I arrived here 26 years ago in October 1991 with eight horses. As the winners began to flow we worked hard to upgrade things year on year, adding better gallops, improving facilities and building more boxes until we now have around 128 horses in training in our two yards.
I’ve been lucky enough to train some great horses including See More Business, Kauto Star, Denman, Master Minded, Neptune Collonges, Tidal Bay, Silviniaco Conti and Big Buck’s. They and many more contributed to my winning 10 trainers’ championships in the last 12 years.
Ours has always been a team effort with our hugely experienced head lad Clifford Baker leading by example from the front. He is the first man into the yard long before dawn each day and the last to leave in the evening.
Now we are rebuilding for the future with an exciting team of young horses ready to take a big step forward in the next 12 months. Just about every horse that arrives here is bought with chasing in mind and we have a particularly strong team of novice chasers.
With the support of our new sponsor Morson Group, a partnership we are particularly proud of we are all incredibly excited about the season ahead. In our constant quest to maximise the potential of every horse that enters into our care, we are thrilled to have now teamed up with feed supplier Dodson and Horrell, ensuring all our horses dietary and nutritional requirements are met with a first class team headed up by Clifford.
