About Mick Easterby

Since taking out a licence in 1961 Mick Easterby has sent out thousands of winners on the flat and over jumps, establishing himself as a legend of northern racing. Assisted by son David, Mick trains approximately 100 horses here at New House Farm near Sheriff Hutton in North Yorkshire.

With an eye for bloodstock that is second to none and respected across the industry, Mick has become a firm favourite with generations of racing fans across the country. The indelible stamp that he has put on racing has seen his winners cheered home by owners, punters and an army of fans.

The yard's esteemed history boasts a Classic winning filly (Mrs McArdy), a Champion Sprinter (Lochnager) along with a Gimcrack winner (Wiganthorpe) and a Winter Derby winner (Gentleman's Deal).

Attached to a working farm, the yard is largely self-sufficient with all of the hay and oats grown on the farm so we know the feed is pure and fresh and we can trace its path from field to stable.

Mick is always ready to welcome new owners to the yard, and as the country's oldest active racehorse trainer there isn't a yard in the country that can offer you the benefit of more experience.
