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.

Instant Replay: makes his rules debut

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

Six runners; three at Nottingham, three at Fakenham

We’re jumping at Fakenham and Jethro is first to post in the extended two-mile Handicap Chase (3.40). The five-year-old is yet to get his head in front and was unlucky not to land the Brian Ellison Racing Chase at Sedgefield back in August, when beaten half a length into second. He is fitted with blinkers again today and is partnered by Paddy Brennan.

Ebazan goes in the 2m7½f Handicap Hurdle (4.10). He pulled up on his first start back at Carlisle earlier this month following 16 months off the track but he has come on for that run and needed it badly. Danny Cook is back in action now and rides today.

Instant Replay goes in the closing bumper for Conditional and Amateur Riders (5.10) and has Megan Carberry on board. He’s a lovely horse who has done well for a break after being purchased out of the Doncaster Spring Sales. He finished second on his only start to date in an Irish Point and has been training well.

We’ve two making their debuts for us at Nottingham this afternoon.

Bowban lines up in division two of the mile Maiden (2.20). An unraced son of Makfi, he’s been in good form at home and is ready to run. Ben Curtis rides.

Valac goes in the 1m2f Maiden (4.50). The four-year-old Dark Angel gelding has been off the track a year but is another who seems well in himself and no doubt whatever he does today he will improve. Ben Robinson takes 7lbs off.

Royal Flag also runs in the aforementioned maiden. The six-year-old is fitted with blinkers for the first time and Ben Curtis rides.

NOTE: NON-RUNNERS: Ebazan, Bowban, Valac
