My Race Days
I hope that you all have been enjoying the sunny weather that we have been having. With a bit of luck, you will all have been out and about enjoying yourselves and won't have missed me too much, as it...
The last month has been a really busy time with the two year old breeze up sales kicking into top gear. For the first time this year I ventured to France to a fairly new breeze up sale held at...
I've really enjoyed the build up to the Grand National this year. It is the world's greatest race and Channel 4 have done a marvelous job showcasing it. I watched the excellent documentary last night called 'How To Win The...
Today should've heralded the start of the flat season for 2013, with the Lincoln at Doncaster due to be run, but unfortunately Winter has rather overstayed it's welcome and snow has put paid to turf racing, both flat and National...
Well, so much has happened since I last wrote... The trouble with being busy is, although it gives me plenty to write about, if often leaves me with no time to actually sit down and blog it. I'd still prefer that than...
Right, I am back at the computer, once again using the free internet in Panera Bread, an American bakery/coffee shop (thanks Panera!) and aiming to upload the photos a lot quicker than the last time. The store closes in two hours so...
Welcome to 2013! I know that it is February already, but it has been a busy winter so far. I have been dividing my time between America and Newmarket and earning the airmiles like they are going out of fashion....
So I must start this blog with a big SORRY for forgetting to take the video camera with me to Florida. I tried to compensate by taking a video on my mobile phone, but alas my hands are too shaky...
Training horses is a pretty demanding task, keeping me busy 365 days a year. So in order to get a holiday, I have had to bring the horses with me. This year has brought us to Florida, and what a...
The excitement of the first Newmarket Open Day held in many years has kept us all very busy, but it was well worth all the hard work and effort as we all had a brilliant day and I think our...
With the three day July Festival staged in Newmarket, and the July Sales also held in the town at Tattersalls, it was always going to be a busy week. We also staged the next item on our Owners Calendar Of...
We have been enjoying a few brief glimpses of sunshine this week, in between the showers! We have got caught out riding out in t-shirts during the muggy weather when a sharp shower has suddenly drenched us with no warning....
The first part of our double came via Tariq Too, winning the 3.45 at Doncaster under Harry Bentley. We purchased the horse last year at the Tattersalls October horses in training sale for just 13'000gns from fellow Newmarket trainer David...
I hope that you enjoyed the photos of our trip Stateside at the weekend. I have had trouble uplaoding the video I took so thought I would write a blog instead. However the owners of Deerslayer have written a piece...
Well we prayed for rain, and rain we have got!! Having had a couple of soft ground horses ready to run at the start of the season, we were worried by hose-pipe bans and forecasts of 'hottest summers on record...
About Amy Weaver
My name is Amy and I'm the trainer of a stable of 20-odd horses up in Newmarket, which is known as the "HQ" of flat racing.
After working alongside many great trainers I took the plunge in 2008, aged 26, to go it on my own, and it's been the most amazing experience so far.
It's so exciting to be able to share with you all the highs and lows of being a racehorse trainer. We have a great young team here, who you'll all get to meet, and we'll show you the life behind the scenes in a trainers yard, hopefully you'll keep in touch with us and how we get on!
We're a growing stable so it's an exciting period, we've got some good horses here who you can get to know, so there's some good times ahead.
It's not all horses though, we have a great laugh too. I'm also here to tell you more about racing so ask away if you have any questions, and enjoy our story!
