Mark Johnston johnston racing
With Johnston Racing Since January 1987

Mark has trained more than 100 winners for 25 consecutive seasons, achieving success in Classics and numerous Group One races. Born in Scotland in 1959, he became interested in racing through his father’s ownership of horses. At 14 he knew he was destined to become a trainer, but decided to study first as a vet and after qualifying worked in veterinary practice for three years.
