WELCOME

Brendan Powell is a trainer who has long  been admired and his owners are extremely happy to be associated with him and the team at Frenchmans Lodge Stables, based in Upper Lambourn.
As a young lad, Brendan started out working for legendary trainer Jenny Pitman. His first winner came at Windsor in 1981 aboard Button Boy for David Gandalfo. In his highly successful career as a jockey he rode almost 700 winners at home and a near 100 more abroad.

Synonymous with the 1988 Grand National winner Rhyme N Reason (who himself was bred to win a GN being out of a half sister to the 1984 GN winner Hallo Dandy); the pair made a miraculous recovery at Becher’s Brook on the first circuit. After over jumping and slithering along the turf Brendan somehow managed to gather his partner together. After getting to his feet, and by now well down the field, they gradually got back into the race and recorded a memorable victory over Durham Edition. Brendan can also boast 2 Scottish and 2 Midlands National’s, plus several Cheltenham Festival winners in his impressive resume.

When he retired in 2000, he originally set up training in Winchester with only a handful of horses. Now 18 years later and a move to Lambourn in 2006, he has trained in excess of 750 winners and holds a dual-purpose licence. His training
career has been very successful to date, not least with the stable star Dark Emerald (now retired), who won 2 races in Dubai and was runner up in a Group 2.

Brendan and his team remain focused on producing fit and happy horses, who enjoy a healthy and varied training programme through the use of the many fantastic gallops available to them in Lambourn.
