An 8 times winner by Alhaarth

"I've been training racehorses here at Sheriff Hutton for sixty years and have trained almost 3,000 winners. Hope you enjoy my new mobile site.
Hidden within the spectacular countryside of North Yorkshire, north of York, lie the stables of one of Britain's most famous racehorse trainers.

For over half a century Mick Easterby has trained champion racehorses from his yard at Sheriff Hutton. Mick Easterby has often been described as a 'legend', famed for his shrewd placement of horses and unsurpassed knowledge of every aspect of racing. Over the years he has sent out literally thousands of winners from his Sheriff Hutton stables.

Famous winners include the Classic winning filly Mrs McArdy (1000 Guineas), sprinters Wiganthorpe (Gimcrack Stakes) and Lochnager (Champion sprinter), middle distance pattern winner Gentleman's Deal (Winter Derby) and most recently Hoof It (Stewards Cup 2011 and Stewards Sprint 2016) and Hoofalong (Scottish Sprint Cup). Famous jumpers have included Mr Snugfit and Triumph Hurdle winner Peterhof. You can read about our famous winners in the Hall Of Fame.

All of the horses trained here at Mick Easterby Racing are treated as individuals. Racehorses have different training needs which must be satisfied in order to get the best out of them. As you can see from our website every racehorse at the stable is important and we give every one their own page and photographs.

Now Mr Easterby offers you the opportunity to take advantage of his many years experience, either as an outright owner or as a partnership or member of a syndicate.

On this website you can find out about the first class training facilities that he has to offer and see profiles and pictures of horses currently in training, from five furlong sprinters to hurdlers and steeplechasers. Mick Easterby also has a dedicated staff who look after the horses.

If you're interested Mr Easterby would be glad to help you purchase perhaps a future champion sprinter or even a Grand National winner, and benefit from his many years of experience of buying and training talented bloodstock.

We have also had success at the yard with many home bred winners over the years. In the fields around the yard are mares and foals, many of whom are previous winners for Mick Easterby.

At Mick Easterby Racing we are always ready to welcome new owners. We have vast experience in running racing clubs where racing enthusiasts share the thrills of racehorse ownership by owning smaller shares in several horses. Please contact us if you wish to discuss setting up a racing club with Mr Easterby.

On this website you can:

View the horses currently for sale.
See profiles and pictures of all of our horses in training.
Read the stories of our famous winners in the Hall Of Fame.
