Here we tell some of the stories from the yard in our own words! There have been many tales to tell over the past decade, about the staff, the owners and of course the horses, so we aim to capture some of the stories here!



Training George Washington's Grandson

Posted by MWE Racing | Friday 17 November 2017

George Washington was a brilliant world class racehorse. A four times Group 1 winner, he was retired to stud in 2006. However, due to fertility problems in March 2007 George Washington was replaced at stud by Holy Roman Emperor, and returned to training. Tragically he lost his life in the Breeders Cup Classic at Monmouth Park in 2007, breaking a leg.

Whilst at stud he managed to produce just one foal, Date With Destiny, who in turn, in 2016, produced her first colt foal. The colt, by Lope De Vega, is here in training at Mick Easterby Racing and preparing for the 2018 flat season. Here we join him with work rider Jess Anderson.
