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 most recent promotional video

Italian Beauty: drops in grade at Ripon this evening

Friday, May 6th, 2016

Two runners at Ripon this evening

Italian Beauty lines up in the SIS Stream Selling Stakes (6.20). A four-year-old daughter of Thewayyouare, she ran well on her debut for us at Redcar over a mile in very testing conditions back in March but was never travelling at Chelmsford last time. She’s up in trip here, which is a slight question mark, but she’s taking a significant drop in grade and we’re hoping for a much improved performance. Ben Curtis rides.

General Alexander: fitted with cheek pieces today

General Alexander goes in the six-furlong Maiden (8.30) and is partnered by Ben Robinson who rides him out at home on a regular basis. He has run well enough on both his starts so far this year; third at Thirsk last time over six following a good second at Doncaster, when he probably should have won, on his reappearance over seven. He’s fitted with cheek-pieces for the first time today and remains in good order.

Yesterday at Chester

Top Notch Tonto ran too free and never settled in front under Ben Curtis in the Betway Huxley Stakes and Top Of The Glas, drawn wide, had too much to do from a long way off the pace in the T&L Leasing Handicap.
