Manor House Stables is a thoroughbred horse racing establishment situated in Cheshire, England from where racehorse trainer Tom Dascombe currently operates.[1]

The stable, converted from a cattle barn by Michael Owen and his wife Louise, began operating as a training establishment in March 2007 with 30 horses in training.[2]

In July 2009, Betfair co-founder Andrew Black was approached to become joint owner of Manor House Stables LLP. The completion of this deal enabled the company to secure the services of successful racehorse trainer Tom Dascombe, who as of March 2010 has over 100 horses in training at the stable.[3]
