Rae Guest has a lifetime’s experience of training racehorses in Newmarket, the headquarters of British racing. Although not a one trick pony, he is best known for his exemplary record in training fillies. These include unbeaten Group 1 winning two year old Serious Attitude (Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes 2008 and Grade 1 Neartcic Stakes at Woodbine Canada in 2010); dual Group 1 winner My Emma (Yorkshire Oaks, Prix Vermeille); multiple Stakes winning sprinters Millyant and Miss Anabaa; 1,000 Guineas placed Aldbourne; and high class stayers Moments of Joy and Marakabei. In fact, Rae can train whatever type of horse his owners send him - colts, geldings, flat and jump racehorses - and he takes a pride in getting the best out of every horse. Chestnut Tree Stables was originally called Marriott Stables when built by The Jockey Club along the then undeveloped Hamilton Road in 1968. Champion trainer Henry Cecil was its first occupant and trained back to back Guineas winners in Wollow and Bolkonski, before he moved to his then father in law, Sir Noel Murless' Warren Place where he still trains. Lord Huntingdon, the Queen's former trainer, was another distinguished owner of the yard, and its last owner before Rae was Robert Williams. Rae bought the yard in 1998, when it was not in good condition. Since his purchase all the boxes have been re-ventilated and insulated, each with a window through which the horses can put their heads. The staff accommodation has been thoroughly revamped, with space now for eleven staff living on the yard in good standard accommodation. There is an indoor ride for the horses to use when the weather is bad; an all-weather trotting ring; six paddocks; and three sand pits for horses to roll in.
