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.

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

Top Notch Tonto

Monday, March 27th, 2017


With all the excitement revolving around Definitly Red and the Grand National recently it is easy to forget the start of the 2017 British Flat Turf season gets underway at Doncaster this weekend and we’re looking to have a good few runners on Town Moor during the opening two-day meeting.

We’re double-handed in the Betway Lincoln Handicap on Saturday with Dream Walker and Top Notch Tonto and both are in great form ahead of what will be their second start of the year.

Others with provisional entries at Doncaster include Bowban, Be Kool, Eastern Racer, Mr Skinnylegs, Sugarloaf Mountain, Suitor and Top Of The Glas with Sunday looking a busier day than Saturday for us at this stage.

Definitly Red & Danny

Definitly Red is set to be the centre of attention once again on Thursday with Tanya Arnold from the BBC scheduled to visit the yard.

Keep checking the website for details of when footage will appear on TV. We’ll continue to update as and when we hear.

It is understood last weeks filming will be shown on Calendar (ITV) on Friday evening, April 7th and on ITV Racing: The Opening Show on National day, Saturday, April 8th.
