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.

Originally a £22k Tattersalls Book Two yearling in October 2018 Makyon was initially trained at Middleham by Mark Johnston; here he is winning the BB Foodservice Novice Auction Stake, six furlongs, Hamilton 6th June 2019 under Silvestre De Sousa on his second start for Kingsley Park; and on the strength of this he ran a really decent race in the 2019 Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot beaten just under five lengths; rated 96 he won a second race, at Ayr, in July 2019 before finishing second in a Class Three Novice at Musselborough at the beginning of August 2019.

Things did not go quite so well in handicaps from Middleham as a three and four year old and we were able to buy him for our Racing Club at Goffs at Doncaster at the beginning of August 2021; he has had four runs for us showing that, off his current mark of 44, he is well capable of winning races; he is a horse who can take a serious hold and who needs to be ridden with both confidence and patience; off his current mark he is well capable of winning for our Club and he will give us a lot of fun and interest.
