One of the most famous racing yards
in Middleham built in 1800 by Lord Glasgow.
This yard is situated close to the Market Place
in the centre of Middleham and is the the home
of Chris and Judy Fairhurst....

This is the plaque on the house wall which commemorates the day when Glasgow House sent out the first four in the 1822 St. Leger Stakes. It is said they left the yard in the very same order that they finished in the race!

Delighted to have Alfie join our team

Together the Fairhursts` take a very active 'hands on' part in the running of their yard and can be seen riding out daily.

They encourage syndicate ownership and partnerships and are supported by a loyal and hardworking staff.

Any of their owners will tell you that it is more like one big family at Glasgow House Stables and you will always be made welcome when you come to visit your horses...
