Meet the 5 residents in the Rothschild Yard including our famous faces – Cheltenham Festival winner Penhill and multiple Group 1 winner Kingsgate Native.
Our latest arrival, Kingsgate Native, stayed with us at the start of 2017 and we are delighted to welcome him back. He was a great sprinter, winning 8 of his starts including the Nunthorpe Stakes as a 2-year-old and the Golden Jubilee Stakes the following year. In 2016, Kingsgate Native retired and moved to a new home at the British Racing School where he teaches students how to ride. He would love to meet you!
