Welcome to Dean Ivory Racing

Dean Ivory Racing

My father Ken was a successful jumps and flat trainer for thirty years and I’m the third generation, having taken over the licence at Harper Lodge Farm in 2002.

Training for me is a passion. I love the day-to-day contact with the horses, seeing them develop as youngsters, making their racecourse debut and then progressing into older, successful equine athletes.

We are very proud of the 115-acre private training establishment we have built up here in Hertfordshire with superb, state-of-the-art facilities for training the modern thoroughbred.

I know a trainer is only as good as the team behind him and it is largely down to them that we recorded our best ever season in 2017, for the fifth year in a row.

Whether an existing owner or looking to dip your toe in the water, I hope you enjoy this glimpse behind the scenes at Harper Lodge Farm.  If you’d like to know more, why not come and see us? Who knows… you could become an owner and help us make 2018 another record season!
