Welcome to Mark Usher Racing!

I have been training racehorses since 1983 and I am now based in Rowdown Stables, Upper Lambourn, a modern, purpose built, Yard with 30 Boxes with easy access to the superb Lambourn Gallops. We moved into Rowdown on the 1st January 2016 and you can see something of the excellent facilites we have here. My team and I work hard to do the best for our horses and to achieve success and enjoyment for our owners; I pride myself on high standards and attention to detail.

Visitors to the yard are always welcome! You can keep uptodate with the latest news from Rowdown by clicking this link and you can see our immediately upcoming Entries and running plans by clicking here and then selecting 'Entries'.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Dylan's Sea Song

2014   Bay   Mare

by Dylan Thomas (Ire)  ex  Mary Sea (Fr)  ( Selkirk )

        Ushers Court
        Owner:  Ushers Court

Bred by Janet Gawthorpe Dylan's Sea Song is a rangy NH Mare and is a half sister to two multiple middle distance winners, Jamaica Grande and Elsie Bay. If you follow this link you can see her working at the end of December 2018 as she approached her first run in a NH Flat Race in January 2019; and here she is a fortnight later working with Arlcchino's Arc and Born to Please immediately prior to her first run.

She ran for the first time in a NH Flat at Newbury at the beginning of January, closing in behind the leading pack at the cross fence before finding the lack of race sharpness against her up the straight; returning to Newbury seven weeks later she showed marked improvement (and showed herself to be a promising NH racemare) to be a running on second in a similar race on easier ground, which you can see here.

After a Summer at grass she ran in three good quality Newbury Novice Hurdles in December and January running a similar race each time and showing more than enough against decent opposition to suggest that she will be competitive in Novice Handicap Hurdles.

She made her reappearance following the resumption in a sixteen furlong Handicap Hurdle at Stratford in the first week of August; and, on better ground than that she ran on in her Novice races, she put up an improved performance to be a running on second and would have been closer but for getting held up on the turn in; you can see a video of the race by following this link.

Still on better ground she put up a fine display to win a Southwell Mare's Handicap Hurdle, deservedly getting off the mark, in the middle of November; you can see a video of this race here.
