Ivy Lea Farm
Owner: Carol Tinkler & Parents
Notes: Ivy Lea is the family farm of Carol Tinkler's parents. Carol previously operated from Musley Bank Stud, when is was owned by her husband, former leading National Hunt jockey and dual-purpose trainer Colin Tinkler Jnr, who is the son of Colin Tinkler and the elder brother of Malton trainer Nigel Tinkler. Tinkler stopped training in the late eighties to concentrate on the stud (which he'd founded in 1981), where pin-hooking weanlings for re-sale as yearlings was a major part of the operation. In June 2003 Musley Bank (which stood on 38 acres and has main house, gallops, indoor school, turnout paddocks and numerous boxes) was sold to Tinkler's former riding colleague Richard Fahey who moved his training operation there towards the end of July. Colin Tinkler moved to train at Mijas in Spain in 2003, whilst his wife Carol has moved the stud operation back to the family farm at Scampston on the other side of Malton, from where she also trains point-to-pointers. At the start of 2004 Colin Tinkler briefly re-commenced his British training career in the South of England.
