Shadwell Racing

Horses have been running in the nominated colours of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum since 1980 when a 2 year old colt named MUSHREF won a race at Redcar racecourse on the east Yorkshire coast. Since then, some of the world’s best racehorses have brought home the now famous blue and white colours in more than 50 international Gr.1 races including 13 European Classics, the Melbourne Cup, Breeders’ Cup Classic and the Dubai World Cup.

Today Shadwell has over 350 horses in training in the UK, France, Australia and South Africa that are managed centrally from Shadwell’s racing office in the UK. Angus Gold, Shadwell’s Racing Manager and his assistants Richard Hills and Kate Whitehouse work in conjunction with over 20 trainers in various different countries to fulfil the ambitions of Shadwell’s racing projects. In addition to this office and sales based team, Shadwell retains the services of 2 world class jockeys Paul Hanagan and Dane O’Neill. Paul Hanagan has been Champion Apprentice Jockey (2002) and twice been Champion Jockey in the UK (2010 and 2011). Dane O’Neill is based in Lambourn, Berkshire and is a Gr.1 winning jockey having ridden BOLD EDGE to victory in the Prix Maurice De Gheest.
