David Lanigan

Flat race trainer at Kingsdown Stables in Upper Lambourn. David was assistant trainer to Sir Henry Cecil, before taking out his own training licence at the end of 2007.

The stables consist of a main yard with well-ventilated stables, as well as two smaller yards, ideal for two-year-olds or fillies. There's both an indoor and outdoor trotting ring, a horse walker and lunging pit, perfect for breaking in the yearlings.

The yard is just a short walk from the Lambourn gallop facilities, maintained by Jockey Club Estates.

The web site includes details of David and his team, plus horses in training and regular news updates from the stable.
