Welcome to Simon Waugh Racing

Simon has been training racehorses on the family farm at Molesden since he was 17 years old and he has enjoyed a fair amount of success with his own and his family’s horses over the years.

He spent some time working for Jimmy Fitzgerald, this was a valuable experience which greatly added to his knowledge of the business of training racehorses. Whilst Simon has ridden many winners himself, some years ago he decided to concentrate on the training and allow his daughter, Amie, and brother, Adam, to ride the horses.

Amie began her riding career in point-to-points and hunter chases before graduating on to an hold an Amateur license. In 2021, she turned professional, getting off to a fantastic start with a win on her first ride!

Although Simon has held a full National Hunt and Flat license for a few years now, he really began to develop this from 2013. He has built up a small but successful stable of horses with a group of loyal owners including The Northumberland Racing Club which has enjoyed some great success. The results are improving year on year!

This is a family run yard with brother Adam acting as a work rider whenever he can and Pip Waugh who is specialising in Equine Massage, a very useful skill which she continues to develop.

Because Molesden is a relatively small yard, owners can get really involved with the progress of their horses and enjoy a personal approach.
