Yen Hall Farm is the heart of Sarah Humphrey's successful training operation. Sarah is a dedicated, hard working racehorse trainer who has held a dual purpose public licence since March 2008 having previously held a permit, trained point to pointers and evented.

Sarah's plan is to remain a relatively small, hands-on trainer with no more than a couple of dozen horses so that she really can give each of the horses individual attention. Being based with her husband and family at Yen Hall Farm, a working arable and sheep farm of 250 acres in South Cambridgeshire, about eight miles from Newmarket, is ideal as it creates a relaxed environment for the horses, with plenty of paddocks but with great facilities at home and the superb training grounds in Newmarket just a 20 minute box drive away.

For a small yard, Sarah has had a remarkable amount of success and, for example, during the 2011-2012 season, Sarah won more than £100,000 in prize money for her owners and had 24 wins from just 98 runs, giving her one of the very best strike rates of all the trainers in the country. In addition, Sarah had seven 2nds, sixteen 3rds and nine 4ths, so that her horses were in the "winners' enclosure" a remarkable 56 times from the 98 runs, an amazing tally, giving the owners lots of fun and satisfaction. Highlights of the 2012-2013 season included back to back wins on the flat Sandown and wins in bumper, hurdles and chase races, including on debut runs for the yard with a variety of horses, and winning a classy juvenile hurdle at Newbury on the second day of the Hennessy meeting in November.The 2013-14 season has been a little frustrating but Sarah has still had a 40% wins and places to runs strike rate - ie she has led horses back into the winners' and placed horses enclosure on 40% of the times her horses have run. Highlights have included Minella Hero winning at Uttoxeter, Flemi Two Toes winning at Huntingdon and Landenstown Pearl finnishing the season on a high with a win at Plumpton on Easter Monday. We are very excited about the prospects for the 2014-15 season, with some lovely young horses being tuned up to make their mark on the track.
