Richard Spencer has worked in racing for the last 10 years, with his first position at Peter Bowens in west Wales. He moved to Barry Hills in 2006, and continued as pupil assistant with Charlie Hills. Whilst with Hills, Richard gained valuable experience including travelling horses to run overseas. In 2010 he was responsible for Prime Defender when running in Dubai, Deauville and at Longchamp. Richard was also responsible for breaking in their crop of yearlings each year.

At the end of 2012 Richard moved from Lambourn to Newmarket and spent two years as assistant to Michael Bell at Fitzroy House.

Richard joined Rebel Racing at Albert House Stables at the end of 2015 and took up the position of Trainer when his licence was awarded at the end of March 2016. Richard is an accomplished race rider, having ridden 25 winners over Point-to-Point. He also rode under rules as an amateur, with notable wins in the Hunter Chase at Ascot in 2014 and the Royal Artillery Gold Cup at Sandown in 2012. Richard was placed 3rd in the Amateur Riders Handicap at Doncaster, riding for Her Majesty The Queen.

Richard brings enthusiasm and a vibrant approach to his position, and looks forward to training winners for Rebel Racing and all of his owners this season. Less than two years from his licence being received and starting to train the winners have come thick and fast with the winning tally at the end of the 2017 calendar year doubling from the previous year. The biggest achievement for Richard and the team at Albert House in 2017 was Rajasinghe winning the Group 2 Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot and when doing so breaking the track record and giving owners Rebel Racing and Phil Cunningham their first taste of victory at the Royal meeting. Rajasinghe went on to finish third in the Group 2 July Stakes at Newmarket giving nothing away in defeat carrying a three pound penalty.

The success that Richard has had in a relatively short period of time has seen the numbers of horses in training double in size, the quality is on the up and new owners have arrived. On the back of all this and with the support of Phil Cunningham who has recently purchased Sefton Lodge one of the most beautiful training yards in Newmarket with fantastic facilities to house the future stars that are being prepared for the coming year.
