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

Totalize: makes his debut over fences at Ayr this afternoon

Tuesday, January 16th, 2018

One runner today

Totalize goes to Ayr for the 2m½f Novices' Chase (1.45). Off the track a good while, 535 days in all, he was last seen out finishing a close-up third in the competitive Ladbrokes Handicap Hurdle at the Galway Festival in 2016. He wasn’t beaten far in the Chester Cup that year and put in a respectable performance at Royal Ascot too before winning a Class 2 handicap Hurdle at Market Rasen. He missed the whole of last year.

Now nine, he’s plenty of ability and has been training well. Danny Cook, who partners him this afternoon, has been in schooling him over fences ahead of his chasing debut today and was happy enough with his jumping. There are only four runners in what will be very testing conditions; hopefully he can put in a decent round and run a respectable race.

NOTE: Ayr will hold an inspection at 8am to determine if racing will go ahead

2016 colt by Gale Force Ten ex Luxuria (photo taken Jan 5th, 2018)

The majority of our two-year-olds are now ridden away and hack cantering up the six-furlong gallop. They seem to be a nice bunch and on the whole were very good to break. Some are a little bit more forward than others, even at this early stage, but all have been pleasing us and are going the right way.

We still have several two-year-olds for sale and more information can be found on our FOR SALE page. Click HERE

We are aiming to take more photos and some videos of a number of our youngsters this week, weather permitting. Check back soon!
