Leech Racing has a clear philosophy which underpins everything we do and has a proven track record in delivering results. We believe strongly in an individual approach, developing tailored training programmes for the specific needs of each horse. Leech Racing has been highly successful in improving horses where a larger yard has been simply unable to give them the time and focus required to unleash their potential.
Highly ambitious, we have a constant desire to improve and to provide the best possible results for our expanding list of owners. Our outlook is professional, flexible and approachable.
Sophie took out her full license in 2007, with her husband Christian as Assistant. Christian’s background as a BHA handicapper is an enormous asset and gives us the competitive edge in the placing of horses through understanding the handicapping system. This is vital in converting entries to winners.
Initially based in Oxfordshire we achieved early success with 10 winners from under 100 runners. Based in South Devon last season, we had our best ever season, growing our win / placings ratio and winning a prize fund in excess of £100k.
In October 2011 we relocated to Tudor Racing Stables in Gloucestershire, a fabulous, central location from which to build on our success.
Herring shoes are proud to be sponsors of Leech Racing.
