SINCE 1994, when Nick Littmoden first took out a trainer’s licence, he has moved only in one direction, upwards. Before starting out on his own as a trainer, Nick built up a good understanding of the profession while serving as assistant to Jenny Pitman and, before that as pupil assistant to the late Mick Masson. “From the moment I found racehorse training as a 19-year-old, I’ve never wanted to do anything else. That was it, I was hooked,” says Nick.

He began as a salaried handler at Southwell racecourse with just three horses in his care where part of his remit was to teach students from a nearby college who themselves wanted to become trainers. Switching to Wolverhampton, Nick soon established his own business and took a lease on a yard there. His operation was growing rapidly at this stage with numbers rising as the successes came on an increasingly regular basis.

By early 1999, the realisation came that to continue progressing and improve the quality of stock it was necessary to move to larger premises. Therefore, in March of that year, Littmoden arrived at Southgate Stables on the Hamilton Road in Newmarket. On the all-weather, especially, Littmoden has been a major force, taking the top trainer’s title on no less than 5 separate occasions. Also, on the turf there have been many memorable days and Group wins in England and Ireland as well as frame finishes in Pattern company in both Germany and Canada. Sucesses at Royal Ascot and Heritage Handicaps is also where his name would have come to the fore.

2011 has seen the purchase of Brook Farm with a private onsite woodchip gallop, lunge pit, menage and 20 acres of paddocks for turnout. With Newmarket's facilities on our doorstep and only a short horse box ride away you would struggle to find a nicer place from which to train.

In recent seasons the extra competitiveness of the town’s training ranks have made it harder for middle ranking trainers like Nick to secure the big breakthrough, but his handling of good sorts such as Magnus Maximus shows beyond doubt that he is more than capable of holding his own given the right horses.
