Some lovely messages

20th December 2019

We've received some lovely messages since our recent Christmas get together at Rockliffe Hall.

One of the most rewarding parts of being involved with Hambleton Racing is helping people take their racing enjoyment to the next level.

There are so many aspects that go into owning a racehorse but one of them is undoubtedly friendship and we're very fortunate to have made some special friends over the years and witnessed many new friendships blossom as we share racing's journey together.

We've been overwhelmed and touched by the amount of owners who have taken the time to write to us to express their gratitude and say how much they had enjoyed the day.

We're very lucky to have such a fantastic group of owners and wanted to bring you a selection of the kind comments we've received here.


Please could you pass on Julie's and my special thanks to you all for a gorgeous Christmas lunch last Tuesday at Rockcliffe Hall. The whole afternoon was brilliant and it was great to meet up with old friends and yourselves just before Christmas itself. I hope this can become a regular event, thank you so much again.



A great Big Thank You to all of you at Hambleton for a wonderful afternoon on Tuesday. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and New Year. May your stockings be filled by many winners.



Thanks for the lunch we enjoyed it very much. We would like to thank you for your personal service throughout the year and wish all of you a merry Christmas.

Kev and Joanne


Thank you for a truly lovely luncheon at Rockliffe Hall which we both enjoyed immensely.

Can I thank you all at Hambleton for a magnificent start to the Christmas period. As ever the event was superbly organised with good food and what is all important, good companionship. A very Happy Christmas to you all and a very successful 2020 to one and all.

Just to say how much Christine and I enjoyed Christmas lunch at Rockliffe Hall.  It was really nice to meet other owners as well as the rest of the Hambleton Racing team. Great company!  Great fun!  And the magician was really...........magic! Well done on organising such an enjoyable occasion!



Just wanted to say thank you for everything today. The venue was lovely, as was the food and it was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon. A lot of time and thought has obviously gone into it, and at this busy time of year for you all, you’ve pulled it off....again! Well done!



A big thank you for the lunch today, good company and an excellent venue . A great addition to the Hambleton Diary!

Really pleased we decided to stay the night before and enjoy all that Rockcliffe has to offer.  A special thank you Lizzy for sorting the transfer back to the station. Cheers, and hope you all have a great Christmas

Just a note to the entire Hambleton team, the lunch today was a superb event, the venue, the meal, the drinks, the company and the entertainment. Many, many thanks for all your hard work.

I want to say a huge thank you for all your hard work this season and all the prep you’re putting into next year, and all the massive amount of work you do.

Have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your families, hopefully you’ll get some deserved rest over the festive period. I hope 2020 is a fantastic year for team Hambleton.



On behalf of Carol and I, may I say how much we enjoyed the lunch and hospitality this afternoon. It was a super venue.

The hard work in making the arrangements and in making everything so enjoyable was much appreciated.. We will have to brush up our skills for any future quizzes! Thank you also for the excellent calendar, no excuses now for missing fixtures.

Thank you to you all for your help over the year and best wishes to you all for Christmas and the New Year.



May I on behalf of, Graham, Eileen, Sheila, Sarah and myself, thank you for the lovely day at Rockcliffe Hall. We all enjoyed the cuisine and company and had a thoroughly entertaining afternoon. The magician was a very nice touch.

Once again, many thanks.
