Godolphin Stables, Newmarket

Godolphin Stables was formerly known as Stanley House stables and is one of the most famous racing establishments in the world. The stables were built by Frederick Stanley, 16th Earl of Derby, in 1903 and originally named Stanley House stables after Lord Derby's nearby house.

This is a place steeped in racing history - framed horseshoes in the stables memorialise more than a century of winners – but today Godolphin Stables is also a state-of-the-art training yard with a swimming pool, sea walker, equine spas and private grass and all-weather gallops. 

The summer base of trainer Saeed bin Suroor, Godolphin Stables has capacity for up to 115 horses.

Godolphin horses based here have recorded many notable victories, with the brilliant Shamardal, fellow Classic winner Dubawi, Rio De La Plata, Fantastic Light, Ramonti and the 2009 St Leger hero Mastery among the G1 winners to be sent out from here.
