Kerry Lee, Welsh National & Grade 1 winning Racehorse Trainer.
Kerry Lee was born to train racehorses. From an early age she was assisting in the running of her father Richard’s successful stable and now holds the licence in her own right. With a stable of 31 horses in training, Kerry’s focus is on each individual horse. Based at Byton, The Bell House nestles in the rolling Herefordshire countryside. The purpose-built yard features a six furlong private all weather gallop known as Brand Hill, schooling grounds including cross-country jumps, brush hurdles and fences, as well as extensive woodland hacking. The yard is located on the Shropshire and Welsh borders and we count Bangor, Cheltenham, Chepstow, Ludlow, Worcester and Warwick racecourses as our local tracks.
The race of the season at Hereford takes place at 5pm on Tuesday 26th March. Kerry is sending a string of four horses for the mile and a half flat contest in aid of St Michael’s. Kerry will be riding Top Gamble alongside Jordan Devlin on Sir Will, Justin Bond on Zara Hope and Belinda Rose on Sinakar. Full dress rehearsals were in operation at the yard over the weekend and if you would like to sponsor or come along and support us, more details can be found here: www.justgiving.com/kerryleeracing

Plenty of opportunity to progress and go racing. Accommodation provided. Please apply firstname.lastname@example.org or 07968 242663. Kerry with 3rd lot 14-10-16
Kris Spin gave us all reason to grin at Kelso on Saturday. Kris Spin and Richard Patrick enjoyed the attritional conditions in the £40,000 Edinburgh Gin Handicap Hurdle at the Scottish Borders track and powered home to beat Donna’s Diamond by just over two lengths. Kris Spin’s own prize of a bag of carrots headed back to Herefordshire on Saturday night with him and will accompany him on a long and well earned summer holiday. At the age of 10, Kris Spin has run to a career high mark of 140 having won at Ayr, Fontwell and Kelso this season.
