Keith Dalgleish was one of the best apprentices the country had seen for many years. Stable jockey to Mark Johnston, Dalgleish notched up nearly 300 winners, including a £70,000 Group 1 in Germany aboard ‘Yavana’s Pace’. Naturally, at 6ft tall it was a daily struggle to maintain the required weight. At just 21 he had no choice but to retire, the only sensible option, or in his words another season juggling his weight would send him “potty”. Keith joined Belstane Stables in January 2011, and in August 2012 the yards owner, Gordon McDowell handed Keith an opportunity which was too good to turn down – He took over the yard, which is now the home of Keith Dalgleish Racing. Now in his seventh season as a trainer Keith and his team have achieved over 360 winners to-date. A shrewd, workaholic trainer, Keith delivers a constant stream of winners and is clearly one of the best young trainers in the country.
We are delighted to offer our first horses with Keith.
