NEWMARKET trainer Roger Varian will move to Clive Brittain's historic Carlburg Stables for the 2017 season after purchasing the property.
Leaving his base at Kremlin House, Varian will look to expand his blossoming career at the former home of 82-year-old Brittain who enjoyed his first major success from the yard in the mid-1970s.
Varian said: "It's an honour and a privilege to purchase such a historic yard in Newmarket. I have great admiration for Clive Brittain as a person and a professional and I hope that myself and my family will enjoy Carlburg for as many years as Clive and Maureen have.
"An extended 'thank you' must go out to all of my owners whose continued support has made this possible."
