Rebecca Menzies Racing and Howe Hills - The Perfect Match


With no Racing background or connection to fall back on, Rebecca has worked her way up the ladder at a tremendous pace.

From stable lass, racing secretary, travelling head lass and then assistant to the multiple Grade 1 and Cheltenham Festival winning Trainer Ferdy Murpy it’s been through drive and determination that she now presides over her own very impressive training establishment.

From her first training yard at Brandsby, formerly the home of Gold-Cup winning Trainer Peter Beaumont, Rebecca enjoyed three fruitful years as a fledgling in the ranks but quickly established herself as a force to be reckoned with among a new breed of Trainers entering the sport.

A move to Howe Hill Stables in Co Durham was an opportunity too good to pass over. With just a short canter to Sedgefield Racecourse, excellent transport links and the new All-Weather surface at Newcastle a huge plus to her charges and team that have supported her since the start.

Formerly the home of hugely popular and successful dual purpose Northern Trainer John Wade it’s allowed the yard to grow, expectations to rise and Rebecca and her committed staff to embrace the next step forward for a blossoming operation.

With a growing number of owners, horses and staff for carefully planned campaigns under both codes of flat and jumps it’s an exciting time for all at Howe Stables.

Rebecca prides herself on her approach to new owners and has built several successful relationships with syndicates who enjoy all aspects of owning a horse and getting them performing at the best at their ability on the track.



Rebecca Menzies Racing is a one of a kind and a perfect advertisement for the Sport we all love and enjoy. A beautiful dual purpose yard at Howe Hills Stables in Morden, County Durham which has been the home of Rebecca and her team since the summer of 2016.

A canter from Sedgefield Racecourse, close to the All Weather track at Newcastle and perfectly positioned beside the A1 motorway for runners all around the country in the search of success on the racecourse.

Rebecca, alongside a committed team pride themselves on attention to detail, working closely with specialist nutritionists, physiotherapists and vets ensuring the horses in their care are absolutely at their utmost condition and contentment.

It’s that attention to horse welfare and condition that puts Rebecca and her yard at the forefront of a new generation of Racehorse Trainers and it’s bringing the success it deserves to everyone involved.

We encourage all the owners to come and visit their horses at the yard and watch them work or just pop in and have chat and see the horses and discuss plans over a coffee in the office, we feel this is a huge part of being an owner as gallop mornings and watching your horse work is something that owners love to do......and of course going racing!

Contact Rebecca and her team and get involved. We hope you enjoy the website and thank you for visiting us.

Wed 14 Nov - Ayr Duo

We only have two runners today up at Ayr and they are both in the same race.

Dulce Panem returned from a lengthy break at Carlisle last time, he should be sharper for that run, whilst Porto Du Sud is returning from a break, he has shown plenty of ability and we are looking forward to having him back on the track in what looks like a competitive 0-110 handicap hurdle.

We had a few gallopers up at Newcastle yesterday morning, we are always grateful of any opportunity to have racecourse gallops and Newcastle do a fantastic job of organising such mornings.

Thu 15 Nov - Southwell AW

We have two runners at today's all weather meeting at Southwell.

We start off in the first race with My Cherokee who may be a few pounds out of the handicap, but we have always thought this surface could suit her, we go there looking for a positive run with one of the tracks leading jockeys booked (Andrew Mullen)

The second runner needs no introduction, Landing Night is a super little horse for his owners and he always wins his share of races, he has liking to this surface, he returns after a break with PJ McDonald booked to ride.

Sat 17 Nov - Wetherby & Arqana

The ground at Wetherby is described as Good and we have two runners. 

The first of our runners, Captain Mowbray, will appreciate the Good ground and he has a liking for this course, he has been in good order at home and we are hoping he performs well for his owners, Premier Racing Partnerships.

The second runner, Pain Au Chocolat, has a touch of class and starts the campaign off a mark of 138, he would ideally prefer it a touch softer, he is a very capable horse on his day and we are looking forward to a good season with him.

We will have a representative at the Arqana Sales in France next week and we have a short list of potential horses, if anyone is interested please get in touch with us.
