Ruth Jefferson took over the running of Newstead Cottage Stables in February 2018 after the sad passing of her father Malcolm. The team have trained for the Racegoers Club since 2013 and during that time have won a place in the hearts of a loyal and growing number of share owners who have been involved with our horses that Malcolm trained.
The whole Jefferson family always provide a warm welcome when our horses run at the yard and an exceptional nursery ground for young horses. Every horse is treated like an individual and never rushed or over faced with what with they are asked to do. Malcolm trained many top-class horses including Dato Star, Cape Tribulation, Attaglance, According To Pete and more recently Cloudy Dream, Cyrus Darius, Waiting Patiently and Double W's.
She recorded her first winner as a trainer when Cyrus Darius won his second Morebattle Hurdle at Kelso on 15 February 2018. We look forward to supporting Ruth and the team for many years to come.
