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 recognisable since its acquisition 17 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.

Meet Brian and take a tour behind the scenes in our promotional video

Viens Chercher: one of three runners at Market Rasen today

Friday, June 23rd, 2017

Three runners at Market Rasen

Bowban makes his hurdling debut in the opening 2m½f Juvenile Hurdle (1.40). A son of Makfi, he has been placed on all three starts on the all weather, has been training and schooling well and Brian Hughes rides.

Viens Chercher reappears in the DFDS "Summer Plate Trial" Handicap Chase (3.55) over 2m5½f. He’s well and ready to run but may just need this outing. Henry Brooke rides.

Scottsdale goes in the bumper (5.10). Owned by Andrew Barnes, the gelded son of Cape Cross, now a four-year-old, has run twice to date, winning his second outing over 1m5½f at Towcester back in November. He’s been working well and Brian Hughes is on board.

Amazing Grazing goes to Redcar for the 1m2f Maiden (2.20) but will only run if there has been sufficient rain. A three-year-old gelded son of Intense Focus, he ran well on his racecourse debut to finish third over a mile at Wetherby 17 days ago and has come on for the run. He’s in good order and Ben Curtis rides.

Laura with Brian

OUR KYLIE & Laura Wilson win Ladies' Derby at Ripon

OUR KYLIE, partnered by our head girl, Laura Wilson, took the Old Mutual Wealth PCA Ladies' Derby Handicap at Ripon yesterday.

Drawn on the wide outside, Our Kylie broke well and Laura soon had her settled towards the rear of the field. Always travelling well, she switched wide to make good headway over three out, cruising up to join the leaders. Taking it up with over two furlongs to run she stayed on well, despite wandering around and idling in front, to win by three-parts of a length with ears pricked. She won a shade more cosily than the winning margin would suggest.

It was a dream comeback ride for Laura having beaten cancer last year and everyone is absolutely thrilled to bits for her.

Our Kylie remains on target for a return to the Galway Festival, which gets underway this year on Monday, July 31st.
