Lucinda Russell - Horse Racing Trainer
Lucinda Russell's Arlary House Stables is Scotland's leading National Hunt yard.
OUR HISTORY WITH LUCINDA RUSSELL
We have always had a horse with Lucinda to fly the Scottish flag for the Club. Our first horse was the very popular Superior Command who won twice for us and was places numerous times. He ended his racing career in style by winning at Musselburgh but unfortunately picking up a small tendon injury during the race. He was a great horse for the Club and gave us all many memorable days at the races. We hear he is loving retired life. Hey Listen joined the Club next and after many trips to the Scottish courses, the pinnacle being when he was beaten by a neck at Perth, he was retired to pursue a much more successful career in eventing. Morito Du Berlais was next to fly the Club flag. He was a very classy hurdler for Paul Nicholls in his day however he struggled with various niggles and issues and sadly never made it to the racecourse in the Club’s colours but is instead enjoying a quiet life outside of racing. We currently have our exciting young horse Emirat De Catana under Lucinda’s care. He has showed huge improvement since joining the yard and seems to be getting better and better. He won on his handicap debut at Perth and hopefully there will be lots more to come from “Ratty” as he is affectionately known at the yard.
