Cheshire horse-training centre stabilised by £75k funding package

12 August 2020

Oliver Greenall Racing has secured a £75k funding package from NatWest to safeguard the future of the business and protect jobs.

The facility, which is currently training 40 horses for both flat and national hunt racing, recorded 20 winners in the 2018-2019 season and was on track to improve on this before the 2019-2020 campaign was cut short due to the coronavirus.

The Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS) funding from NatWest has enabled the centre to continue caring for the horses and maintain training schedules.

Founder Oliver Greenall said: "We have built a strong reputation for training horses to successfully compete in major races across the UK.

"The support from NatWest has enabled us to continue training the racehorses in our care and futureproof the business while horse racing was paused.

"We are now looking forward to our next season with a team of much stronger horses and hope to achieve our most successful results to date."

Phillip Mills, relationship director at NatWest, added: "Oliver and the team are committed to delivering the best possible care for the horses entrusted to them and they have maintained a great performance track record.

"We were pleased to support the business with a CBILS funding package and we will continue to work with Oliver in the future as the business expands."
