"I have known Michael and Sharon for many years, firstly through his Point to Point syndicate - Staverton Owners Group - and since 2009 I have had horses of my own with them. Their first priority is for the welfare of the horses in their care which are trained within the picturesque surroundings of Staverton Farm. They have given me plenty of fun days out at the races - and the icing on the cake! - many winners too."

Jill Haines

" I have had numerous horses trained by Michael, they're always turned out looking immaculate and his attention to detail is second to none. His horses are fit and well and I know of no-one who could do a better job for me."

Mark Holder (Mark Holder Racing Ltd)

" Personally I think Michael is a very good horseman and he’s a very fair and honest trainer."

Wayne Clifford

"I always enjoy riding Michael's horses, you know they will have been well prepared and schooled. We have enjoyed many successes and hopefully there will be plenty more...."

Basle  Wins  Lingfield

"A disastrous race for many, but not for Basle who wins for Michael Blake.
Interesting that this is Michaels first time with the horse and seemingly he has Basle in a very very happy place."
