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.

We purchased this fine, big guy out of Sir Mark Prescott's Yard at the beginning of August 2021; he ran to around 63 for Sir Mark in his Maiden days and he is likely to improve with time and, probably distance, we were thus absolutely delighted to see himwin decisively for us first time out in a competitive ten furlong Handicap at Chelmsford in the middle of September 2021; there will be more to come from him.

He went through something of a quite spell in 2022 and, whilst running ok, did not really perform to his potential; the positive element of this is that by New Year 2023 he was a well handicapped horse; stepped up in trip he won two Kempton Classified Stakes over eleven and twelve furlongs in January and February 2023; although he did not perform all that great at Bath on soft ground he showed how much he appreciates the Kempton version of the polytrack by finishing third in a competitive Handicap and then followed this up by winning a really competitive handicap over eleven furlongs decisively in the middle of June 2023.
