Welcome to Charlie Hills website, which will keep you up to date with all the news from Faringdon Place.
Following an eight year spell as assistant trainer to his father Barry Charlie took over the license on Monday 22nd August 2011. During his time as assistant he was lucky enough to have worked closely with horses such as classic winners Haafhd and Ghanaati, and Group 1 winners Red Clubs, Dark Angel, Equiano, Redwood, Maids Causeway, La Cucaracha and Spinning Queen.
Before his time with his father Charlie spent six months in Australia working for the Hayes family, this was followed by a two year stint with James Fanshawe in Newmarket where he was associated with high class horses such as Soviet Song, Gandera, Invermark and Hors La Loi III.
Charlie is proud of the fact that all the current owners at Faringdon Place are supporting him, and he is equally pleased that the top class staff structure that is in place will remain.
The private training facilities at Faringdon Place, a mile outside Lambourn, are some of the most modern in the country. There are 3 indoor barns which house the horses, an indoor school and 125 acres of private gallops which comprise of two woodchip gallops, a polytrack gallop and extensive grass gallops.
