1902-November 1928 Peter Gilpin
Peter Valentine Purcell Gilpin, son of Captain Peter Valentine Purcell of the 13th Dragoon Guards, was born at Pau in the Pyrenees in 1858 and was educated at Prior Park College, Bath. He rode his first race in public aboard Sir John at Pau, although the horse refused after 2 miles of that race. Peter Gilpin was actually born Peter Pucell junior, but in 1883 he married the daughter of Captain Henry Meux-Smith, and shortly afterwards she inherited Hock-liffe, property of her uncle Sir Richard Gilpin, on the condition that the couple take the name Gilpin. The married couple settled down at Halvers-town in Ireland where Peter Gilpin began training a string of horses, predominantly owned by General Sir Arthur Paget. On the basis of his success with that string, Peter and his wife moved to England to train at Langton Stables at Pimperne, Dorset.

Again he showed himself to be a trainer of great merit, and at the turn of the century he moved to Newmarket to take up residence at the newly designed stables built by Alf Stedall. Peter named the stables Clarehaven after his 1900 Cesarewitch winner who defeated a field of 21 to reward Ludwig Neumann for his unbridled support of Peter. After moving to racing's Headquarters it did not take Peter long to establish himself as one of the leading trainers in the country, sending out the sensational Pretty Polly (SR 2080) to land the Fillies Triple Crown in 1904, earning him his one and only Trainers Championship that season. A year later he achieved his second Cesarewitch victory with Major Loder's Hammerkop, made even more pleasing because his inaugural triumph in the race with Clarehaven had funded the building of Clarehaven Stables and Lodge. Peter continued to build on that success, earning him the nickname 'The Wizard of Clarehaven' and within two years the exceptionally talented Spearmint (SR 2060) had won the 1906 Epsom Derby. Mr Edward Bird was replaced by Peter's son, Victor, as assistant once the 1906 season was concluded. Peter was a successful owner in his own right, his racing colours of white, maroon hoops and cap, often graced the winners enclosure, most notably with Delaunay who won the King's Stand Stakes and July Cup at the less than rewarding odds of 1/50 when opposed by just one inferior opponent, although he will be best remembered for his successes in the Derby, Oaks, St Leger and 1000 and 2000 Guineas, the Eclipse, the Gimcrack and Middle Park Stakes, even when the War years intervened. Mr Ludwig Neumann decided to reduce his involvement in racing during the First World War, which meant stable numbers were in their mid-30s, but Peter was content with that number as it enabled him to take on the horses of James Buchanan, previously with Fred Darling, when Fred decided to sign up and do his bit for the War effort. During his time at Clarehaven both of his sons married. Victor, the eldest, married the daughter of Lord Ernle, while the younger son Geoffrey Gilpin married the Honourable Mary Beaumont, daughter of Viscount Allendale. Once the War ended Peter continued to notch up principal race victories, including the inaugural running of the Prix De L'Arc de Triomphe in 1920 with Comrade. In the early 1920s Peter began spending more time in Ireland at his Dollanstown Stud in Kilcock county Kildare, while Victor was left in charge. In 1927 he suffered a broken collar bone whilst hunting in Ireland, and in 1928 his sight began to fail.

NEWMARKET RACECOURSES
For over 4 centuries racing has been staged in Newmarket, but how have the racecourses evolved from an initial starting point at Fleam Dyke Pumping Station, some 8 miles from the town, with a winning post barely 200 metres from the town centre, into two world recognized, excellent racecourses and a universal acceptance that Newmarket is the Headquarters of racing?
To access an interactive racecourse map showing over 50 individually named racecourses CLICK HERE. The map will enable you to:-
1. Determine when extended races over 8 miles, 6 miles and 4 miles began to be replaced by the courses now visited by thousands annually;
2. Consider how the challenge of crossing the Devil's Dyke was overcome;
3. Contemplate why the town no longer has a steeplechase course despite having at least 5 courses during the past 2 centuries;
4. Examine the practicalities of having up to 48 starting posts and winning posts;
5. Appreciate that it was not financially viable to have an open racecourse spread widely across the heath, with a finishing post barely 200 metres from the town centre;
6. Research how and why the Cambridgeshire Handicap has been contested over 3 different courses.
NOTE: The map does not make mention of 2 particular courses:-
(i) Sefton Course (also known as the Cambridge Road Course)
Source: 1970 Raceform.  Used from 1959 to 1975.
(ii) New Circular Course
The Circular Handicap was run on Friday 29th October 1875 on the New Circular Course of about two miles.
Source: London Standard (30th October 1875): ''the horses started near the Turn of the Lands, ran back way of the Cambridgeshire Course towards the Ditch, and afterwards proceeded down the side of the Tan Gallop, and turned into the Rowley Mile near the Bretby Stakes starting post, finishing at the stand at the end of the flat. Except in the hollow near the Cambridgeshire start the runners should have been visible all the way if the sky had been bright and clear''.
Another report hoped that the Circular Handicap would become a feature in future programmes, as it would be contested in front of the new grandstand which would be completed in about a year and would be able to accommodate thousands.
(I am grateful to Tim Cox for bringing attention to these 2 courses.)
Enjoy researching the intriguing history of Newmarket and its many racecourses.
He died at his Dollanstown Stud on Friday 9th November 1928, leaving son Victor with an important decision to make. Victor owned Cleveland House on Old Station Road and had the option of acquiring a few boxes to launch his own training career, or taking over Clarehaven with all the additional financial problems that were associated with that option. Shortly after Peter's death Messrs Hampton & Sons were instructed to put Clarehaven on the market. At that time the training establishment covered 18 acres and consisted of a Gentleman's house, a trainer's house, 40 loose boxes, yearling boxes and hack stables.

November 1928-December 1935 Victor Gilpin
On the death of his father Peter, Victor had to decide whether to train at Clarehaven or to acquire boxes and train at Cleveland House. He had been joined by Charlie Smirke, who had just completed his apprenticeship, in 1928, although in August Smirke had ridden Welcome Gift at Gatwick when the horse refused to start. The incident was reported to the Stewards who subsequently warned Smirke off for 5 years. They did eventually relent and return his licence after Welcome Gift refused to start in a similar fashion when racing in India. In March 1929 Victor moved into Clarehaven, although it remained on the market. He had early successes when Bonny Boy II landed the 1929 Great Ebor Handicap and, later, Colorado Kid won the 1933 Great Jubilee Handicap at Kempton. Later in the year, in September 1929 he sold Cleveland House to Lord Rosebery. In 1931 Victor was joined by John Hislop, later to be third in the 1947 Grand National aboard Kami, as his assistant, and when 4 years later Victor moved to Sussex, Hislop moved with him. In December 1935 Harvey Leader negotiated a deal to purchase Cleveland from Victor Gilpin who had, by then relocated to Michel Grove in Sussex. In the end the deal fell through and Leader continued to train at Bedford Lodge in the 1936 season.

February 1936-December 1962 Sir Alfred Butt
Although Victor Gilpin moved out of Clarehaven in December 1935, bound for Michel Grove, near Findon, Sussex, the establishment remained on the market. Negotiations with both Ramsden and Leader failed to materialise into bids, but in late February 1936 Clarehaven was sold to the theatrical magnate Sir Alfred Butt. However, Butt confirmed that his horses would continue to be trained at Fitzroy House by Frank Butters.

Sir Alfred Butt, son of Alfred Beyfus, was born in London on 20th March 1878. He built a theatrical empire which included the Adelphi and Empire Theatres, and was also a Conservative politician and MP for Balham and Tooting from 1922 to 1936, and was appointed Director of Rationing during the First World War. In June 1936 he was forced to resign as an MP over an alleged financial scandal, devoting his time thereafter to his passion, horse racing. He purchased Clarehaven Stables in February 1936 and the Brook Stud on the outskirts of Newmarket. In July 1936 the former Royston trainer Robert (Bob) Adams applied to take over the tenancy and trainer's house at Clarehaven at the end of the 1936 season, although Sir Alfred continued to reside in the main house, choosing also to maintain the grounds. Sir Alfred was a lucky owner, winning the 1946 Epsom Oaks with Steady Aim 7/1 (SR 1936) trained by Frank Butters and ridden by Harry Wragg, also winning the 1946 Ascot New Stakes with Petition. On Thursday 13th April 1950 Clarehaven House suffered a theft when an intruder broke in and stole the 1933 Manchester Gold Cup won by Robber Chief, and the 1937 Edinburgh Gold Cup won by Noble King, the pair being valued at £3000. He died at his Newmarket home on 8th December 1962, aged 84, and was cremated at Cambridge Crematorium a few days later.

October 1936-1939 Robert (Bob) Adams
While Sir Alfred Butt resided in the main house, Bob Adams trained at Clarehaven Stables from the end of the 1936 season. He spent most of his career on the continent and was champion jockey of Austria-Hungary on 6 occasions. He also rode 3 Derby winners, an Oaks winner and 9 St Legers. Once he hung up his riding boots he became an equally successful trainer, training no less than 6 Derby winners, 11 Oaks winners and 3 St Leger winners on the continent before moving to Royston in 1931 as assistant to R Pope, before taking charge on Pope's retirement in 1934. He applied for a Newmarket trainer's licence in July 1936 and took on the tenancy of Clarehaven at the end of that season. In 1937 he was very proud of his daughter Daisy, who campaigned to ride in the Newmarket Town Plate over 4 miles, which was first instituted in 1666. Although it was one of the few races which allowed lady riders to take part, each horse had to carry 12 stone. Miss Audrey Bell, daughter of Newmarket trainer John Bell, had ridden in the race on a number of occasions, but Miss Angela Jelliss and Miss Daisy Bell, also daughters of Newmarket trainers, campaigned to have the weight reduced to 10 stone, claiming their mounts were disadvantaged by having to carry up to 5 stone dead weight. The conditions were not altered so they felt that they had no option but to withdraw. In September 1938 Bob Adams, who had experienced health issues for a number of years, was moved to a London Nursing home suffering from rheumatic gout. He did not fully recover and was not in a position to resume his training career. He died on Tuesday 26th January 1943 aged 66.

1939-40 Cecil Boyd-Rochfort
Although Cecil Boyd-Rochfort had already made a name for himself at Freemason Lodge, at the outbreak of the War he was in a position to also make use of the facilities Clarehaven.

1946-1951 Ryan Jarvis
After leaving the services, where he was in the Grenadier Guards, Ryan Jarvis, son of Royal trainer Willie Jarvis, and nephew of Basil and Jack Jarvis, resumed his training career at Clarehaven, having launched his career at Malborough House in 1936, before the outbreak of the War, recording his first winner, Alexdream 4/11 fav owned by Colonel H E Hambro and ridden by Harry Blackshaw at Birmingham on Monday 2nd November 1936. He had served his training apprenticeship with father Willie at Egerton House Stables, and with his uncle Fred Butters at Kingsclere. He took on a lease from Sir Alfred Butt after the War and, in June 1949, he made a conscious decision to not train any National Hunt horses during the winter, preferring to keep spare boxes to welcome yearlings. When the lease ran out in 1951 Ryan moved to Phantom House.

August 1952-1967 Lord Harrington, Geoffrey Brooke
In August 1952 Lord Harrington, of Patrickswell, County Limerick, purchased Clarehaven Estate, with its 70 boxes, from Sir Alfred Butt for £30,000 (equivalent to £890,000 in 2019) and confirmed that Butt would continue to reside at Clarehaven House, while Geoffrey Brooke would be installed in the trainer's house. Geoffrey Brooke joined Dartmouth at the age of 14 before entering the world of banking in Canada. He served during the War, in the 15/16th Lancers, reaching the position of Captain. However, when the First World War ended Brooke sought employment in racing, joining his uncle Atty Persse at Chattis Hill, and eventually becoming his brother-in-law, remaining with Atty between 1922 and 1949 except for the War years. He had rejoined the 15th/16th Lancers during the Second World War and was promoted to Major. Major Lionel Brook Holliday, a wealthy Yorkshireman who made his money from manufacturing dyes, appointed Geoffrey Brooke to be his personal trainer at La Grange Stables in 1950, remaining loyal to Brooke until 1952. During this period Holliday won the 1946 Princess Elizabeth Stakes with Netherton Maid, trained by R W Colling, and the 1951 Epsom Oaks with Neasham Belle. However, in 1952 things came to a head when Holliday enquired about the performance of a runner he had at Ripon. He is said to have phoned Brooke and said, 'What happened to my filly at Ripon? One of my friends said she did not run very well and did not look too well either'. Brooke's response was, 'I did not know you had any friends', which marked a point of no return in the relationship, and shortly afterwards Brooke was replaced by Humphrey Cottrill. Holliday's loss was Lord Harrington's gain, as just a couple of months after leaving La Grange he took up a trainers post at Clarehaven. He enjoyed an early Classic success with Our Babu, owned by David Robinson, and Brocklesby victory for Lord Harrington with Knot in 1954, while in 1956 he experienced a different kind of success, marrying Venetia Mabel Cornwallis while he was training at Clarehaven. During his time in charge at Clarehaven he was assisted by a number of people who went on to become excellent trainers in their own right, including Peter Walwyn and Fergus Sutherland. In a magnificent career, training not only Classic winners, but also many winners of the Middle Park Stakes, the Queen Mary Stakes, the Great Metropolitan Handicap, the Liverpool Cup and the Rosebery Stakes, he ended his career at the end of the 1967 and said he was looking forward to a retirement at his Knocktoran House and stud in Ireland. After his death in 1987 the House and Stud was put up for sale by auction. David Robinson, who had owned Clarehaven for a number of years, appointed Paul Davey, son of Malton trainer Ernie Davey, to take over from Brooke. Robinson also owned neighbouring Carlburg Stables, where Jimmy Thompson trained for him until October 1967, after which Robinson appointed Michael Jarvis.

1965-1977 David Robinson, Paul Davey
Towards the end of the 1962 season the Radio and TV Rental entrepreneur purchased Carlburg as his private stables, installing Bruce Hobbs as his trainer, and a few years later bought neighbouring Clarehaven Stables where Geoffrey Brooke trained as a public trainer. After a distinguished training career, Geoffrey Brooke, who had won the 1954 2000 Guineas with Our Babu for David Robinson, decided to retire at the end of the 1967 Flat season. Robinson decided to appoint Paul Davey as his replacement, and shortly afterwards replaced Jimmy Thompson with Michael Jarvis at Carlburg. At one point David Robinson boasted a string of 157 horses shared between Jarvis and Davey, known as the 'Robinson Rangers'; the pair enabled Robinson to become Champion owner in 1969. Paul Davey was born on 25th April 1925 into a racing family, as his father was the Malton trainer Ernie Davey. Paul served a very long apprenticeship with his father, but in 1967 he was appointed by David Robinson to take over at Clarehaven. He achieved an early success with Yellow God in the 1969 Gimcrack Stakes, but his greatest triumph was guiding My Swallow to such success against a cohort which also contained Mill Reef and Brigadier Gerard. Despite being fancied, along with Mill Reef, for the 1971 2000 Guineas, the pair were beaten by Brigadier Gerard. My Swallow won 4 high class races in France, including the Grand Criterium. Deep Diver won an even greater number of races, including the Cornwallis Stakes, the Nunthorpe Stakes and, at the end of the season, the Prix de L'Abbaye. When Robinson decided to reduce his interest in racing in 1974, the writing was on the wall for Davey who, shortly afterwards, returned to Malton, although Robinson did not sell Clarehaven until the end of the 1977 season. Paul Davey died at Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk on 7th March 2007.

1977-1984 Jeremy Hindley
Jeremy Hindley was assistant to the great Sir Noel Murless before moving to Thompson-Jones, but in the 1970/71 season he felt it was time to launch his own training career. Jeremy purchased Kremlin Stables and the nearby paddocks owned by Teddy Lambton. He extended the yard, building an extra 20 wooden loose boxes and two Dutch barns, celebrating his first winner, Hardship, in a novice hurdle at Warwick in December 1970. In his first flat season, 1971, Jeremy enjoyed 8 winners, the first being Fivepenny Piece at Yarmouth in June 1971. Successful stables need showpiece horses to advertise their stable and Jeremy got his first showpiece horse in 1972 when a two-year-old, The Go-Between, won 7 of his 10 starts, culminating in a Newmarket 5 furlong success in the Cornwallis Stakes. In the same season he was gaining prestigious wins in France, capturing the Prix de Meautry with Some Hand. Towards the end of the 1977 Flat season Jeremy purchased Clarehaven from David Robinson, taking with him a string of 78 horses. In 1979 Jeremy passed a milestone when Melaleuca won at Chepstow, for it signalled that he had trained a winner on every Flat racecourse in Britain. During his 7 years in charge at Clarehaven he won the 1979 Windsor Castle Stakes at Ascot with Rollahead, and the 1981 Bunbury Cup with Captain Nick. He transferred to Moulton Paddocks Stables in 1984 where he remained for the final 2 years of his career, training the Italian St Leger winner Comme L'Etoile, before leasing Moulton to Sheikh Mohammed

1986-August 2004 Alec Stewart
Alexander Christie Stewart, son of Lt-Colonel Sir Robert Stewart, was born into a farming family on 21st June 1955 and was educated at Gordonstoun. After completing his formal, academic education he travelled to Canada and New Zealand, fulfilling his dream of working with horses. He returned to England, working for an insurance company in London, but his heart remained in racing, and he became assistant trainer to Gavin Hunter. To gain greater experience in a larger training establishment he transferred to Harry Thomson Jones a year later. After almost five more years with Thomson Jones he decided that the time was right to train on his own account, so during the 1983 season he leased Moulton Paddocks. His first winner was Opale (50/1) in a maiden race at Catterick Bridge on 4th June 1983, but from that humble beginning both he and the horse showed that they were destined for greater glory. A year later Opale landed the Irish St Leger, providing Stewart with his only Classic victory before he was thirty. Towards the end of the 1986 season, after he had married Katherine Domville, he moved to the larger stables of Clarehaven which had been earlier vacated by Jeremy Hindley. Unquestionably his best horse, and the one which really put him on the map, was Mtoto, owned by Ahmed Al Maktoum, who won 8 of his 11 races despite suffering foot problems in the early part of his career. He won the Brigadier Gerard Stakes and Prince of Wales's Stakes in 1987, although the performance which marked him out as something special was his defeat of Epsom Derby winner Reference Point (SR 2122) in the 1987 Eclipse Stakes at Sandown. He gained a second Eclipse the next year, backed up by a victory in the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth II Stakes. But Stewart was more than a one horse wonder, winning the Yorkshire Cup with Braashee, the Doncaster Cup with Al Maheb and the Ebor Handicap with Daarkom.

He also enjoyed his share of Royal Ascot successes, notably with Waajib in the Queen Anne Stakes and Mandobi in the Britannia Handicap. Furthermore, he was a force to be reckoned with on the International stage, winning the Canadian International with Mutamam, and the Prix du Rond Point with Waajib. At the turn of the century, with so many top classes victories to his name at such a young age, he was on course to becoming one of the great 21st century trainers, but within 2 years he was dealt a cruel blow when cancer was discovered. Whilst the whole of the horse racing community willed him to defeat the disease, it was not to be, for he died on 4th August 2004 still short of his fiftieth birthday. Ed Vaughan, who had assisted him for 18 months beforehand, took over Clarehaven when his temporary licence application was successful.

August 2004-November 2004 Ed Vaughan
Ed Vaughan, born in County Cork, was formerly assistant trainer to Alec Stewart at Clarehaven until Alec died of cancer aged just 49. Ed took out a temporary licence in 2004 enabling him to take charge after Alec's passing, and then he leased a barn from Henry Cecil at Warren Place Stables from 2005 until November 2007.

2006-present John Gosden: March 2021-present John & Thady Gosden
John Harry Martin Gosden OBE, son of racehorse trainer John 'Towser' Gosden, was born in Lewes, Sussex on 30th March 1951 and was educated at Eastbourne College before studying Economics at Emmanuel College Cambridge, where he met his future wife, Rachel Hood, who was studying Law. John, a keen, talented sportsman who gained blues in discus and javelin, joined the legendary trainer Vincent O'Brien as assistant trainer on leaving Cambridge, and then moved to assist Sir Noel Murless in Newmarket. He tasted Classic success under both of his mentors, each stable winning the Derby, Oaks and St Leger during his time with them. In order to gain further experience John moved to California, assisting trainer Tommy Doyle before taking out his own American Trainers License in 1979. A decade late John returned to Newmarket, training at Stanley House Stables. He won 2 English Classics during his time at Stanley House; in 1996 Shantou won the St Leger, while a year later Benny the Dip won the 1997 Epsom Derby. At the end of the 1999 season John transferred to Manton Stables, Wiltshire, hitting the ground running when Lahan won the 1000 Guineas in 2000 for owner Hamdan Al Maktoum. In 2006, when Clarehaven Stables became available as a consequence of the untimely death of Alex Stewart, John transferred his string across the Bury Road. He won the 2007 St Leger with Lucarno and, up to 2020, had recorded a further 7 English Classic victories and 5 Irish Classics. A list of John's principal winners at Clarehaven is given below, a veritable Who's Who of equine greatness; Enable, Cracksman, Roaring Lion, Kingman, Golden Horn and Stradivarius to name a just a few. In March 2021, in readiness for the new season, John's son Thady teamed up with John to run Clarehaven.
