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.

Exciting team of jumpers to look forward to this winter

We have an exciting team of jumpers to look forward to this winter including novice chase prospects Definitely Red and The Grey Taylor plus smart hurdler Totalize who is on course for the Greatwood Hurdle at Cheltenham. That’s only three of what we perceive to be our best team of National Hunt horses yet and in an interview with John O’Hara for this weeks Racing Post Weekender (30th Sept – 4th Oct 2015) Brian picked out a few to follow:

Viens Chercher: very likeable with a bright future

Viens Chercher
We got him from France where he had shown bits of decent form and he has really impressed. I expected him to win well on his debut for me at Sedgefield last month and he did just that, hacking up by 19 lengths. He came out of that well so we stepped him up in class at Market Rasen last Saturday and he won again, although this time by only a nose from a smart one trained by John Ferguson. Although he is very young, a 4yo, he is as tough as they come and he really fought for that win. I think the first two home are smart horses and both worth following. Having had such a tough race, we are in no rush to get him out quickly as he will tell us when he is ready. Ultimately he will be a chaser and he has a bright future.
