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.

2019   Bay   Filly

by Farhh (GB)  ex  Blushing Beauty (GB)  ( Youmzain (Ire) )


        
        Owner: 

By the successful and excellent stallion Farhh out of a Youmzain Mare who won in Germany; the filly has, right from her first pieces of work, shown at home that she can put one hoof in front of the other and the Yard were collectively delighted with her first appearance on a racecourse, a seven furlong Restricted Novice Stake at Kempton at the end of October; under an excellent ride from Ellie Mackenzie she powered on home from over two out to finish a fast finishing Second to a 71 rated winner; she will improve very considerable for this run and we hope that she is a nice filly in the making.

Two further runs in Novice company followed, at Chelmsford at the end of November and back at Kempton in the second week of December, finishing fifth and fourth in both races, running well, with a great deal of luck, both times.

She ran for the first time in a Handicap, over seven furlongs on the new tapeta surface, in the second week of January 2022; and, after being keen early, ran really well to be a keeping on third off a mark of 68. We were delighted that she followed up over a mile at Kempton three weeks later, rallying gamely in the last furlong to get back up; the filly will progress again and should have an excellent three year old career.
