Alan King

Dual purpose trainer at Barbury Castle stables in Wiltshire. The site includes details of the training team, stable facilities, horses in training, for sale and previous big winners.

Alan is the son of a farmer, who nurtured a passion for racing from an early age. As a teenager he went to work at David Nicholson's Condicote yard. He was promoted to assistant trainer in 1986 and took over as trainer in December 1999, when Nicholson retired. Six months later he moved to Barbury Castle.

Facilities at the yard include, stables and spa, gallops and schooling grounds. Private behind the scenes stable tours, where you'll get to see the horses on the gallops, are available via prior booking.
