Billy Aprahamian Racing is set in an oasis of green fields and hedges, here a purpose built yard, The Gallops, is the perfect home for racehorses.

It is a peaceful, spacious and healthy environment which allows them to relax and enjoy life.

“A relaxed and healthy horse will eat better and can therefore develop and improve and ultimately perform at their best.” Billy Aprahamian 

The Gallops can house 24 racehorses in a combination of open yard and American barn style stables. The facilities here are fantastic and include a 4 furlong woodchip round gallop, 5 furlong all weather hill gallop, access to grass gallops, a schooling field, schooling arena and 40 acres of turnout.

Meet Your Trainer

Billy is a passionate and enthusiastic young man with a love for National Hunt racing. In his words “I love the horses, and the horses I’m around each day. Our yard and getting our horses to be as good as they can be, I love having them, being around them and watching them develop. It’s the love of the game, that’s why it doesn’t really feel like a job”.

Billy initially played polo professionally but has always been an avid racing fan, in 2011 when he hung up his polo boots the drug that is National Hunt racing really took a grip. He made his debut in the saddle in 2015 and rode competitively for 6 seasons, his greatest achievement was winning the Grand Military Gold cup for Nicky Henderson and the late Christopher Hanbury on Baden in 2018.
