Bullion Boss delivers the money for Nicky Richards at Market Rasen Sunday

The 8 year old Bullion Boss put up a great performance at Market Rasen yesterday to win the Tom Halliday Memorial Conditional Jockey’s Handicap Hurdle over 2 miles 4 furlongs

  • We never imagined when we got our first horse with Nicky 15 years ago that we would have had the level of ongoing success we have had and continue to do so. Success not just at the local level but at the highest level with many emotional days at Cheltenham, in Ireland and at all the big Saturday tracks including Grade 1 wins.

  • I have had horses with Nicky since he took over from his father some 19 years ago and over that time we have shared a lot of success and fun together. Greystoke is a happy yard - the horses want for nothing and in the beautiful surroundings are always given the time to achieve their full potential. The results speak for themselves!

  • I've been involved in various syndicates at Greystoke for several years and it's been great fun. We've been lucky enough to have had a few winners but that's only part of the story. Nicky and the staff are a great bunch, very friendly and accommodating - always willing to help. And we've made some great friends within the syndicates.

  • Being part of a horseracing syndicate at Greystoke  has enabled me to share my passion with like minded people. From a morning watching the horses on the gallops to the thrill of a day at the races, the whole ownership experience is well informed and inclusive to everyone.
