Profile for Adam West
Adam has worked in racing from the age of thirteen. He was attached to the Gary Moore yard while competing in pony club events. He became a jockey in Ireland, enjoying winners both on the flat and over jumps.
He then moved to Epsom, working for John Akehurst and then moved on to be head lad for the very successful Roger Teal, gaining valuable experience with Group class horses.
Adam then took the plunge by starting on his own yard 'Woodruffe West', a small six box yard on the side of Epsom Downs. There he developed a racehorse behavioural business which was well used by trainers in the area.
Now he has embarked on his greatest challenge, taking over the famous 'Loretta' stables in Epsom. He moved in 2018 and has settled in well. 2020 will be his second full season of training from his new base. He has already enjoyed plenty of winners from his new set-up.
The Loretta Lodge stables in Epsom are famous for their association with several classy trainers, and Adam West was delighted to take over in 2018. The yard boasts fifty boxes, well laid out with plenty of room to move around.
Adam has the use of the Epsom downs, but also has his own set of gallops just across the road from the yard. He also has an equine swimming pool as well as turnout paddocks, isolation boxes and walkers.
Two stable visits organised per year. They tend to be in Spring (March-May) and Autumn (September to November). Ad-hoc drop-in days may also be run during the summer months.
