Apollo Knight stands at a touch over 16.1hh and is a lovely prospect for eventing. He is now available for sale out of racing. He has a lovely nature and is easy to do and can be viewed and ridden at the yard.
Apollo Knight is a spectacular jumper and shapes beautifully over a fence. We thoroughly recommend that prospective buyers come to the yard and school him to appreciate his abilities.
The stables of Michael & David Easterby are situated close to the gently rolling hills of the idyllic Ryedale countryside east of the village of Sheriff Hutton. It is here at New House Farm that Mick has trained racehorses for over sixty years.
In 2021 Michael and David took out a joint licence, continuing the long tradition of training from New House Farm at Sheriff Hutton.
Michael's impressive CV includes classic winning filly Mrs McArdy who won the 1000 Guineas and Champion Sprinter Lochnager. Other famous winners include Gentleman's Deal (Winter Derby), Wiganthorpe (Gimcrack Stakes), Peterhof (Triumph Hurdle) and Jon George (Ayr Gold Cup).
The yard has evolved over the past sixty years and has a character that you won't find anywhere else. There's accommodation for over a hundred horses, with a number of gallops, flat, uphill, all weather and turf and also schooling facilities and acres of paddocks where the horses are turned out.
If you'd like to find out more about having a horse trained by Michael & David please give us a call and arrange an appointment to come and visit. Syndicates, outright ownership, racing clubs, partnerships, we can offer any type of ownership to suit the client. Flat or jumps, sprinter or stayer, come and talk to us and we'll find the horse to match your needs.
