Mark Johnston

Location: Middleham, North Yorkshire.  Mark Johnston has won more races than any other trainer in UK racing and, uniquely, has sent out over 100 British winners for 25 consecutive seasons, and more than 200 in all bar one of the last 10!  He has achieved major successes in British and Irish Classics as well as numerous other Group 1 races all over Europe. In 2019 he has already surpassed the previous season’s total of an incredible 226 winners, achieving earnings of over £5,000,000 in prize money! 

Mark has been based at his Kingsley House stables since 1988 and he has wonderful facilities on his 270-acre property, based in the beautiful village of Middleham. Stable visits are highly enjoyable with a selection of Yorkshire’s finest pubs available to stay in. Always immaculately turned out (both horses and staff), he has runners all over the UK with the trainer often arriving at the racecourse having piloted his own aeroplane.

The yard’s horses are typified for their front-running style and bravery in a finish, both attributes that were advertised by the exploits of Classic winner Attraction, one of several other household names trained by Mark like Shamardal and the wonderful Double Trigger.
