Thank you for the thank you’s!

1st April 2022

One of the most rewarding parts of being involved with Hambleton Racing is helping people take their enjoyment of our fantastic sport 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 roller coaster together.

In recent months we've been busy at the stables holding events and have also held our complimentary annual owners' event at Doncaster last weekend, after which we've been overwhelmed and touched by the amount of owners who took the time to write to us to express their gratitude to say how much they had enjoyed the day.

We're very lucky to have such a fantastic group of owners and are now looking forward to another great year on the racecourse. In the meantime a selection of the messages received since Doncaster appears below.


On behalf of Carol and I, may I say how much we enjoyed the Owners' Day yesterday.

It was super to get everyone together again after such a testing period and to meet up with old and new friends.

Thank you very much to you all for the hard work in making the arrangements and in making the day so enjoyable.



Just a short message thanking you all for the hospitality at Doncaster last Sunday.

Joining Hambleton was all about the experiences and the memories, and finding something that Rachel could participate in and enjoy.

Sunday was our first Hambleton social event, and you exceeded our expectations. It was a fantastic day, and Rachel and her carer thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Hope to see you all soon at the races or another Hambleton event.

John & Rachel


Once again thanks for an absolutely fabulous day at Doncaster yesterday it was so good to see everyone again looking forward to another good racing season.

Just a quick thank you for a great owners day at Doncaster yesterday. I have had horses with Highclere, Middleham Park and OTAW and by far Hambleton have been the best. Keep up the good work.



Just a quick note to say 'Thank you' for yesterday. It was obvious that a lot of time, thought, and effort had gone in to making the day another successful event.

Thank you to all of you.



A very belated, but huge THANK YOU for a really enjoyable day out last Sunday at Doncaster.   We met some lovely people and the speeches were very entertaining.   We very much appreciate all the hard work that goes into organising such events and all seemed to go well.

Graham and Ruth


Many thanks to the Hambleton team for a good day on Sunday. We really enjoyed it.

Hi everyone, I just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful day. It could not have gone better for me.



Just a quick message to thank the team and everyone involved for all your hard work in arranging another wonderful owners day at Doncaster.

It was great to have this back after all the troubles of the last two years and it was so good to catch up with old faces and to meet some new owners it is always a good way to start the new season.



Just a brief note of thanks from Sam and myself for the hospitality on a thoroughly enjoyable day.



It was great to be able to attend the Owners Day and catch up with many friends made over the years we’ve been involved with HR. Please pass on our thanks to everyone involved in a successful day which showcased HR professionalism.

Paul & Jo


Just to say a big thank you to you all for yesterday.  It was the first of these events that Anton and myself had attended and we both thought it was excellent.  I even came out in credit, if only by £10!

Many thanks again for a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.



Thank you for a hugely enjoyable day.  It was great to meet you at last and Davina hosted a fun table with a fair sprinkling of other Hambleton 'newbies'.

Marc & Karen


I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say a massive “thank you” for the invite and for hosting a great event at Doncaster, yesterday.

It was awesome to finally put faces to names and also brilliant to meet members of other syndicates and hear about their journeys.

Keep up the brilliant work.



Many thanks for an excellent day yesterday at Doncaster Racecourse.

As ever the Hambleton team came up trumps and Kathy and I enjoyed ourselves and even backed a couple of winners!!

Tim & Kathy


Just a note to say thanks for a great day out yesterday. Excellently run and organised as usual.



Just wanted to say thank you for a great day at Doncaster on Sunday. It was lovely to be back into the Hambleton Family.

Looking forward to racing again this year.

Just want to say a belated thank you for organising and inviting us to the Owners’ Day on Sunday. Myself and mum had a lovely time and it was great to re-meet our syndicate and meet new people from other syndicates.

It was so well organised and everyone was very welcoming and friendly.



We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for our invitation to join you at Doncaster.

We had a really enjoyable day sharing your hospitality and meeting other members of the group. We were fortunate to have the company of Davina on our table. What a lovely young lady and superb ambassador for Hambleton.



Just a quickie to say thank you for a great day out on Sunday, much enjoyed with some great company
