Tjade Collier Racing Planning Ahead
West Yorkshire Trainer Tjade Collier is offering Owners and Trainers the chance to send their horses to him now that the lockdown on racing has begun. The shutdown has forced many jumps trainers to give their horses an early break, so Tjade has decided to open up his facilities to offer a break for horses as many end the national hunt season earlier than expected.
Tjade said “ In these difficult times we’re working doubly hard to keep the business going so we thought that we’d use our facilities here at Salter Royd to offer owners and trainers the chance to send their horses for a break. We’re lucky to have 150 acres of grassland as well as stabling facilities.”
“I’m hoping that the shutdown doesn’t last long, but like everyone else, I’m trying to diversify the business while our usual income streams have been interrupted.”
Tjade, who trained his first winner in January when Ladronne won for amateur Joe Whitaker at Newcastle, is hoping that the shutdown is only temporary. “As trainers we all completely understand the need to take action due to the Corona virus, but we all have a living to make, so I’m trying to keep things going by adding another string to our bow”
