Leading racehorse trainer in Middleham

Johnston Racing

Johnston Racing is one of the top racehorse training yards in Britain. It was set up by Mark Johnston in 1987 and led by him until his son Charlie took over the training licence at the start of 2023, having been Assistant Trainer for several years as well as sharing the licence with Mark in 2022.
In 2009 the stable became the first in the country to send out more than 200 winners on the Flat in a year and has gone on to repeat that feat a further nine times to date. Uniquely, the Johnstons have had more than 100 winners in 30 consecutive seasons, achieving success in British and Irish Classics, and numerous Group One races.
In August 2018 Mark became the winningmost trainer in British racing history when he saddled his 4,194th winner, and four years later, with Mark and Charlie holding a joint licence, Johnston Racing had its 5,000th winner.
