The training premises are based at Pinewood Stables, Worksop where we have stables, turnout paddocks and pens and additional facilities such as a horsewalker and equine spa. There is staff accommodation on site.
We have an all weather surfaced manege and oval canter track with natural jumps at home, and access to different gallops including a mile long all weather gallop, a 4f+ grass and natural tan uphill gallop and a 3.5f sand gallop.
The property gives easy access to the A1 for links to northern and southern racecourses and there are at least 19 courses within an approximate 2 hour driving time. The local courses are Southwell, which runs both all weather (flat) meetings and turf national hunt meetings throughout the year, and Doncaster which runs turf flat meetings and national hunt racing. Shaun Harris Racing has a good relationship with Southwell managers and often uses the facilities to give younger horses a racecourse experience and when horses in training need a racecourse gallop.
We do most of the transport ourselves and have access to both a 2 box and a 4 box. Shaun’s elder son Ciaran runs a transport business which is useful if we have a full load and need a bigger lorry!
