Welcome to Brian Ellison Racing Ltd

Since taking out a training license in 1989 with just five horses Brian Ellison is now one of the leading dual-purpose racehorse trainers in the UK.

Based at Spring Cottage Stables, in Malton, North Yorkshire the training establishment is barely recognizable since its acquisition 15 years ago.

In 2014 a Kraft water walker, one of only a handful in the country, was installed. This came off the back of the construction of 15 field-shelter type stables for those more complex equine residents who prefer not to be confined indoors! These are just two recent additions to the yard, the result of Brian’s forward-thinking and open-minded approach to providing racehorses with what they need. And it’s working.

Our website provides extensive information on Brian, our facilities, the team behind the success and not least the horses, in addition to the latest news from the stables, information on ownership and an interesting Gallery.

Thank you for visiting and we hope you enjoy finding out more about us.

Off The Scale: won well over course & distance two weeks ago

Saturday, April 30th, 2016

We’ve five runners on the Flat today, one at Thirsk this afternoon and four at Doncaster this evening.

One runner at Thirsk

Off The Scale is our sole runner at Thirsk this afternoon and he lines up in the six-furlong Handicap (2.45). A gelded son of Strategic Prince, he won well on his seasonal reappearance over course and distance two weeks ago under Dale Swift; he’s been in good order since and Dale is back on board.

Frozon: he only ran once last season and reappears at Doncaster this evening

Doncaster quartet

Total Power goes in the 3yo Handicap over six-and-a-half furlongs (5.15). He’s back up in trip here and Callum Shepherd rides.

Callum also partners Eastern Racer in the six-furlong Handicap (5.45). He has bottom weight in this 0-90 event. The ground was bottomless at Ripon on his reappearance and it is best to put a line through that run.

Frozon lines up in the six-furlong Maiden (6.15) and Dale Swift partners Andy Barnes Kheleyf gelding. He only ran once last season and has done really well from two to three and is ready for his three-year-old debut.

Rock On Bollinski: in good order

We run Rock On Bollinski in the 1m 6½f Handicap (7.45). He ran well to finish third in a Gentleman Amateur Riders’ Handicap on his reappearance at Donny last month and is in good order. His best form is on soft ground and he likes to get his toe in so he'll appreciate the ground which was described as good to soft, soft in places at 3.30pm yesterday. He’s fitted with the cheek pieces once again and Sean Levey rides.

Yesterday - Two good seconds

Miss Ranger only just failed to get up in the 1m2f Fillies’ Handicap at Chepstow in the hands of Callum Shepherd. Slowly away, she was held up at the rear of the field before switching wide three out. She kept on well, particularly in the final furlong, crossing the line with Distant High. She was beaten literally on the nod. The daughter of Bushranger was following up a good second at Beverley 16 days ago and hopefully it wont be too long before she gets her head in front.

Tallinski put in a good performance to finish second in the Weatherbys Private Bank British Stallion Studs EBF Novice Stakes at Musselburgh. Tom eaves partnered the son of Mayson who was putting a disappointing debut in the Brocklesby behind him. He broke well and made much of the running, battling gamely when headed in the final furlong, but was unable to peg back the eventual winner Lomu, who went on to score by half-a-length. The pair were clear of the rest of the field.
