THE BEATING HEART OF ROWLEY RACING

The old line of “it’s all about teamwork’ really is very true and we couldn’t have achieved what we have done without the unending support of ‘Minty’ and Juliet, without whom the constant supply of quality horses to work with would have been just a pipe dream. Their knowledge, expertise and contacts have definitely helped us get to where we are today and we are forever grateful. Staff come and go, but the team we now have are established and settled and are all striving for the same thing- SUCCESS. We thank them for their continued hard work and we all look forward to a happy and successful season.

GREAT PEOPLE – GREAT RESULTS

PHIL ROWLEY

PHIL

Phil has lived in Shropshire all his life and was handed the tenancy on the family farm about 20 years ago. He has always been a stockman primarily, milking for many years and then building up a breeding flock of 1000 ewes, which has since decreased to about 400, because of the time constraints running the farm and the yard. His family, particularly his Grandmother, have always been passionate about racing also owning racehorses and Phil’s earliest memories are with Granny drinking champagne at the races!

MEL ROWLEY

MEL

Mel moved to Poplar Cottage Farm with her family about 25 years ago and immediately started up a small livery business, looking after hunters and competition horses. She has been involved in horses all her life and coming from a ‘non-horsey’ family had always presumed she would have to work for people, so is eternally grateful for her parents’ support in helping her to realise all her ambitions. As well as the racehorses, Mel has trained and competed to Grand Prix level in Dressage and still tries to fit in as such as she can.
