Spigot Lodge

One of the most accomplished yards in the North of England


Spigot Lodge, steeped in racing history, is named after the 1821 St Leger winner Jack Spigot. The 1849 Epsom Derby winner "The Flying Dutchman" trained by John Fobert was also prepared at the yard and famous trainers such as Henry Hall, Colonel Lyde and more recently Sam Hall and Chris Thornton have continued to produce other high class winners from Spigot Lodge.

Spigot Lodge is ideally situated between Middleham’s High and Low moor gallops. There is a seven furlong uphill polytrack and a four furlong baby track as well as a grass gallop on Low Moor. High Moor has a one mile four furlongs woodchip as well as some superb grass gallops.

Recent Developments

Karl is committed to an on-going development programme of the facilities at Spigot Lodge in all areas to ensure it retains its rightful place in racing history books.

The development of eighteen new boxes at Little Spigot is now complete bringing the total to thirty one stables. Two staff houses and a flat have also been developed along with a horse walker and two turn out paddocks. This compliments the main yard which accommodates over seventy stables, two walkers, a sand pit, loading ramps and twelve turn out paddocks.

Future Plans

We have now finished are development of two american barns, another walker along with a trotting/cantering ring and three lunge pits. This has given us an additional 32 stables and a superb facility for breaking young horses in. It also comes in very handy when the winter weather is against us.

This ongoing investment ensures that Spigot Lodge is one of the best equipped horse racing stables in the North of England.

We have now just started to expand again and building has commenced for a new staff house with seven bedrooms and another barn that will be able to cater for another ten stables.
