Sefton Lodge Stables
After a short stint at Albert House Stables, Rebel Racing’s training operations now take place at Sefton Lodge in Newmarket.
Situated on the prestigious Bury Road, these historic 19th century stables were owned by the Joel family for much of the last century, and later Charles St George. During the latter period, Michelozzo, winner of the 1989 St Leger, was housed here.
Located in a prime position for our activities, Sefton Lodge adjoins the much sought after Bury side training grounds, meaning our team can ride out on to the gallops in a matter of minutes.
Sefton Lodge has been a lucky yard for everyone who has trained at the site – and this is just one of the reasons why our owner, Phil Cunningham, decided to purchase these historic stables in early 2018. By doubling Rebel Racing’s training capacity overnight, the acquisition allowed for rapid expansion and ensured all our horses could train under one roof.
Since the initial purchase, we have invested in extensive renovations at the site to create beautifully equipped premises that are in a class of their own.
The Rebel Stud
The Rebel Stud (Swynford Paddocks) is located at Six Mile Bottom, which is approximately 6 miles from the centre of Newmarket and is ideally placed for Newmarket Racecourse, The National Stud, and Tattersalls.
The premises complement the activities at Rebel Racing by housing our mares, foals, and yearlings. It’s a 10-minute drive from Sefton Lodge, so is easily accessible by our team and the wider Newmarket community.
Rebel Bloodstock Ltd
Born in 2015, Rajasinghe was the winner of the Group 2 Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot in a record-breaking time. A horse of brilliant pedigree, he has since retired, and now stands as a stallion at The National Stud under the Rebel Bloodstock Ltd banner.
With a remarkable 80% strike rate in winners to runners, he’s a sire worth serious consideration.
