Folly House is a historic, charming and picturesque yard in Lambourn. Cheltenham Gold Cup winners have been produced from the yard, and Jamie has been in situ since 2011. The yard has expanded to house 50 horses, with immediate access to the wonderful Lambourn Gallops which are the finest gallops in the country.
Jamie has trained over 240 winners and is lucky enough to have already trained a Cheltenham Festival winner. Last season (2019/20) was his best numerically despite the season ending 6 weeks early due to the Coronavirus, as they ended on 46 winners, with a total of just shy of £380,000. That came at a strike rate of 22%, and there were only two trainers inside the top 25 with a better strike rate.

Jamie has an ability to get the best out of each horse that he trains, but just an importantly makes being involved in racehorse ownership great fun. Jamie and his team are always welcoming and go out of their way to spend time with you and ensure that everyone has a great time, whether visiting the stables or at the racecourse. I would strongly recommend Jamie to anyone looking for an outstanding trainer.
Having a horse with Jamie and his team at Folly House has been a fantastic experience. He really understands syndicates and was incredibly helpful throughout the process of SAAL Racing securing our first National Hunt horse. Jamie treats you the same if you're a sole owner or part of a large syndicate and regular stable visits are encouraged. Following the success of Shantewe we've now added a second horse to the yard with hopefully more to come.
I have had horses in training with Jamie since he first had a licence, and it has been great fun with plenty of success along the way. We are treated as well as the horses, and Jamie's communication with us has been second to none.
It must have been 25 years ago that I started “investing” in horses. The last few years with you have been the best!
