Manchester United footballer Michael Owen welcomed personalities from the sporting and equestrian world to the grand opening of the equine pool and yearling parade of new racehorses at his stables at Manor House, at Hampton near Malpas, Cheshire.


MUFC players, including Tom Cleverley and Michael Carrick, were among the guests who saw the state-of-the-art facilities which have led to Michael Owen’s stables being regarded as the North-West’s leading horseracing training establishment.


Manor House Stables began life as a cattle farm but considerable investment by Owen and Andrew Black, the creator of Betfair, has created a yard with unrivalled facilities for the training of racehorses performing at the top of the sport. The renowned trainer Tom Dascombe has also played a major role in the developments at Manor House.


Manor House sent its first runner to the racecourse in March 2007. Since then it has grown to house over 100 horses, along with training gallops, owners’ suite, veterinary centre and now there’s the addition of the pool and spa.

Tom Dascombe joined Manor two years ago from his previous training base in Berkshire and he hopes to continue progress to make Manor House the best equine training centre in the country.
