Welcome to Manor House Stables

"My mission is to make Manor House Stables the most successful flat training yard in the country..."

Tom Dascombe

I'm Tom Dascombe and welcome to our website. My mission is to make Manor House Stables the most successful flat training yard in the country. I believe that our fresh approach, the abilities and experience of my staff and jockeys, together with the investment from my partners, Michael Owen and Andrew Black, will enable this vision to be realised.

The last six years have taught me that no two owners look for the same thing from racehorse ownership. I believe training racehorses is a business like any other. I get to know my owners, I find out what they want from racehorse ownership and then seek to meet their needs. So whatever it is that you are looking for please call me and I will be delighted to invite you here to take a look and discuss your requirements.

Manor House Stables

Manor House Stables LLP is a partnership between myself and co-owners Michael Owen and Andrew 'Bert' Black. Originally converted into a training facility from a cattle barn in 2007 by Michael and Louise Owen, I joined the team in November 2009. Since then we have gone from strength to strength, the highlights being three Royal Ascot winners, firstly with Rhythm Of Light and Brown Panther in 2011 and more recently winning the 2012 Queen Mary with Ceiling Kitty. For us, this is just the beginning of what we can achieve.


At Manor House Stables we have an ever growing string of exciting horses in training. We also have a variety of horses and shares available for sale on our horses for sale page, as well as some exciting partnership opportunities for the forthcoming turf season. I train for individuals, partnerships, clubs and syndicates. Please take a look under the 'horses' and 'ownership' sections on the navigation bar to find out more.

We set ambitious targets for 2013, with hopes of matching our most successful year to date which was 2012 with 81 winners. It was not to be, however 2014 started with a bang! By the end of June the Prizemoney earned was £130,000 ahead of our target, lets hope it continues.


The facilities in place when I arrived three years ago were great. Since then a new gallop has been installed to my specification and more recently in 2011, an equine swimming pool and veterinary centre were completed. These amazing facilities and the idyllic location make this the place where you should want to have your horse trained. Visit our facilities pages to find out more.
