Niall Saville Racing’s main base is his privately owned facility, Fairy Chant III West, at Fair Hill Training Center.
Niall’s immaculately maintained training barn is comprised of 35 stalls and a variety of paddocks with choice of grass of sand footing. The main barn includes 20 matted stalls, a wide sand shed row, multiple tack rooms, indoor and outdoor wash stalls. The custom built West Annex is complete with full dutch doors and mesh yokes opening each stall to the exterior. Niall designed this feature to ensure that each horse has fresh air, sunshine and unbeatable views of the countryside.
The training center is the most innovative Thoroughbred training center in the country. Situated among the lush rolling hills of the Mid-Atlantic on over 350 acres. Fair Hill Training Center offers the finest in year round amenities. Featuring a state-of-the-art 7/8-mile all-weather Tapeta™ track, 1-mile scientifically formulated dirt track, a 7/8-mile turf course, as well as over 3,000 acres of wooded grasslands. All centrally located within easy shipping distance to 10 racetracks.
We have customized maintenance equipment to ensure the best possible track conditions at all times. The tracks are open until noon each day with a mid-morning break for watering and harrowing the surfaces. Our wide one-mile dirt track was resurfaced from the base up in 2016. It has 10% banked turns and a scientifically formulated cushion and base designed to minimize injuries. The Tapeta™ track is ideal for horses needing both a forgiving surface and maximum fitness from their training. Its excellent shock-absorbing qualities provide an exceptionally safe alternative training surface. A professional gate crew is available to school horses from the gate and assign gate cards three or four mornings each week.
At Fair Hill Training Center, we use the multiple surfaces to our advantage. Allowing the horses to find their stride on the various tracks and make the most of the beautiful open spaces and rolling hills.
