What people say about us

We were looking to join a small horse racing syndicate preferably in a yard local to us in Wiltshire and came across Racing for a Cause. Sharon and Michael were so welcoming and invited us to the yard to look around and we haven't looked back. We have enjoyed lots of wins, met some lovely people and had fun days and evenings out with Racing for a Cause, and also with Staverton Owners Group and 'Champ de Reves' who we bought into, and now have bought our own horse this year which we are very excited about. The standard of training and care by all the team at Staverton for each and every horse is individual and to a very high standard, we can't recommend Michael Blake and the team at Staverton enough.

I have had horses in training with Michael for the last 20 years. We have tasted plenty of success!, Michael prepares and places his horses brilliantly and Sharon is an excellent horsewoman who knows how to get the best out of your horse. I would recommend Michael and Sharon to anyone who is looking for a trainer who produces results within a friendly and fun stable. Long may our success continue!

Rob Robson

Michael runs a small, friendly, dedicated team which are in an ideal position to assess the abilities of the horses in their care and to consider the requirements of their owners. My late wife Jill and I enjoyed countless fun days at the racecourse and had considerable success winning 30 races with Excellent Team, Heir to Be, Rocky Rebel, Stow, Pick a Little, Sadlers Star, My son Max, Iniesta, Kaaber, High Aspirations and Pacha D’oudairies. I am delighted to be able to keep the dynasty going with our latest winner, Fard.

We are delighted to be in the Racing for Cause Syndicate and thoroughly enjoy our relationship with Michael and Sharon Blake and all the staff who look after our horses so well.

It is great to have the opportunity to attend race meetings where the horses are running. Michael communicates with everyone extremely well giving us updates on how the horses have run, how they doing and progress for the future. We have enjoyed our trips to the stables where we have the opportunity of meeting the team in person. It is a pleasure to be part of this syndicate particularly as it raised money for charity as well.

Michael and Sharon are really nice people who are extremely good at what they do!

Luke Harvey

Having been a successful co-owner, since 2013, with the West Wilts Hockey Lads and Racing for a Cause syndicates, the excitement, fun and happy times I have had Michael Blake Racing has been truly tremendous.

Without doubt Michael is an outstanding trainer. His experience, wisdom and equine intuition, strongly and superbly supported by his wife Sharon, has led to a significant number of winners for us over the years and where those less gifted, trainers might have struggled to get the horses to the track, let alone win with them.

Michael is further backed up by a happy, consistent and hard working team at the Staverton Yard who always go the extra mile for the horses they look after.
