As passionate devotees of performance horses, with our own Ballymountain Boy in training with Martin Keighley, we supply surfaces and their components to professionals to make the marginal gains that can mean the difference between winner and also-ran.
Take Cheltenham 2018 for example – the general trend was the greater parts of the win tally were Irish trained horses, right? With only a few top UK trainers taking the spoils in seemingly unrelated circumstances? Wrong. Delve a little deeper and if you took a peek at the surfaces they train on you’ll see some similarities.
Many leading NH Trainers at the very top of the sport use deep sand rings to condition. The sand in them is Wexford Sand, some of this is natural quarried sand, some manufactured through crushing and screening.
We are one firm that supplies 100% genuine natural quarried Wexford Sand to the UK market, in partnership with the producer in Ireland. Natural sub-angular Wexford Sand is the best available, and is harder than it’s manufactured counterpart – it’s this that means the sand surface keeps it’s shape and has very desirable properties to the trainer.
If you are considering a sand loop at your yard, don’t risk it – come straight to us and we will source the sand of champions direct from the producer in County Wexford, Ireland. We will arrange shipping and can also build and install the surface on the gallop or loop in question for total peace of mind and accountability.
