Newmarket Trainers Federation
New Chairman: William Jarvis - Vice Chairman: TBA
 

INTRODUCTION BY MARK TOMPKINS

I am reallMark Tompkinsy pleased to be involved with the Newmarket Trainers website and hope it will be a useful source of information for racing supporters all over the world. Whether you are interested in finding out more about Newmarket or how to pick a horse, we're sure you will find what you need here. Newmarket is, after all, the HeadQuarters of British Racing - some would say World Racing, and no wonder! The place is steeped in rich racing history and the facilities remain totally unrivalled.

Potential owners have so many trainers to choose from here, in just about every price bracket, and all have the use of the outstanding gallops, which continue to be so superbly maintained by Mr. NIck Patton, the Managing Director at Jockey Club Estates, and his superb team of Heath men.
 
There is no doubt that Newmarket is the Number One place to train racehorses, and I was proud to chair the Newmarket Trainers Federation, which represents so many people with so much talent, for so long.
 
Please enjoy the many other features we have on our site, notably, our extensive Trainers Directory. Keep tabs on all our winners here and find further additional information upon Newmarket fixtures, gallops maps and links to the Jockey Club, the Newmarket Heritage Centre and other excellent Newmarket assets here. Additionally, I am pleased to introduce Simon Bailey's column. Simon is Racing's very own chaplain and travels the length and breadth of the country providing varied support to all who are professionally involved in this great sport of ours.
 
I have had a great life as a Trainer with so many highlights over nearly 40 years, most notably, winining the final Classic, the St Leger with Bob's Return but, now retired, I shall be handing over the Chair to William Jarvis though I am hoping to contribute to the site, on a regular basis, in future. No doubt William will echo some, if not all, of my sentiments above and I wish him well. 
 
Continue to enjoy your racing,
 
Mark Tompkins
Ex-Chairman
 
Ps William Jarvis will provide his own statement once the sales season has quietened down...
