Behind the Scenes Tour of Jackdaws Castle 2013
“Jackdaws Castle is without a doubt one of Europe’s premier training establishments, you really do have to see it to believe it”
A.P. McCoy, Champion Jockey and BBC Sports Personality of the Year.
Jonjo and Jacqui are delighted to offer pre-booked, private behind-the-scenes tours of Jackdaws Castle. These tours are limited to seven people and will cost £95.00 (plus VAT) per person. They provide an opportunity to go behind the scenes at one of the most famous training centres in the U.K and to get close to the horses.
Arrive at 9.30 am for breakfast in the Owners’ Suite before being accompanied to the indoor school to watch some of the finest horses in training warm up. Thereafter, weather permitting, you will be driven alongside as they work up some of the most picturesque gallops in Europe.
Next, tour the main yard and meet the stable stars, including Albertas Run, Sunnyhillboy, Alfie Sherrin and Get Me Out Of Here – who knows you might even pick out a future star of your own!
Next stop is the equine pool, where many of our horses swim and then use the solarium.
You may be lucky enough to tour on a day when Champion Jockey A.P. McCoy is riding out. Additionally, any one of our regular team of jockeys, Dominic Elsworth, Richie McLernon, Dougie Costello, Noel Fehily and Richie McGrath, could be schooling.
Return to the Owners’ Suite for light refreshments and a review of your tour, where there might be an opportunity to meet Jonjo himself or other owners who may be visiting Jackdaws Castle.
Depart 12.00 Noon
