SELKIRK trainer Stuart Coltherd has launched a web site for the first time since the Coltherd Racing operation came into being in 1999.

“With 21 horses now in training at our Clarilawmuir yard, the new web site will allow owners and other interested parties access to up-to-the-minute information about the latest goings-on both on and off the track,” Stuart told us on Monday.

“The start of a new racing season is always an exciting time, and the web site contains details of all the horses currently based with us, as well as giving details of how people can become involved in horse racing - either by starting their own syndicate or by joining an existing group of owners.”

Stuart took out a permit to train his own horses in 1999, and gained his full trainer’s licence five years later. He recorded his 100th winner over fences when Ash Park won at Musselburgh in March.

Stuart’s 18-year-old son Sam, an up-and-coming conditional jockey with 28 victories under his belt, recently joined Yorkshire trainer Sue Smith’s Craiglands Farm yard in Yorkshire, but is still available to ride Coltherd Racing horses, if owners so wish.
