Marcus Tregoning Racing & Whitsbury Manor Stables
The Derby winning trainer’s move from Lambourn to Whitsbury early in 2013 with a much reduced squad of horses offered a number of new challenges.
Tregoning showed he was more than up for the task as he and his team set to work with a will to get to know the historic gallops at Whitsbury that had once been the home of the flying grey Desert Orchid.
After a steady start to that first campaign, Tregoning upped the tempo in 2014 with a conveyor belt of winners including the Listed success of Secret Pursuit in France in November which took the stables earnings to over £450,000.
Star of the team was undoubtedly the hardy campaigner Bronze Angel who late in September joined the select band of horses to win the Cambridgeshire twice before going on to land a valuable handicap at Ascot on Champion’s Day.
With Bronze Angel as a trusted flag bearer, and a number of younger stable mates showing promise for the future, we can expect Tregoning to take another significant step forward in 2015.
