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.

Twilight Revenge

2019   Chesnut   Gelding

by Twilight Son (GB)  ex  Sweetest Revenge (Ire)  ( Dagger's Drawn (USA) )

        Ridgeway Partnership
        Owner:  Ridgeway Partnership

By Europe's leading Second Season Sire, Twilight Son, the Champion Sprinter who has sired the winners of 78 races since the resumption in June 2020 (including six Stakes winners rated over 100 and the Cornwallis Stakes winner, the 112 rated Twilight Jet), out of Sweetest Revenge, who Mark trained to win seven races, he is a strong colt who was foaled quite early on the 7th of March 2019.

He is a half brother to the multiple winner Sweet Ovation and the dual winner My Sweet Lord and is from the family of the 1000 Guineas, Epsom & Yorkshire Oaks winner, Love; he is also closely related to the high class Mare that Mark trained between 2004 & 2006, Royal Alchemist.

If you follow this link you can see six of his Dam's seven wins; and this link will show you the speed she showed when winning at Lingfield in October 2003.

This link will take you to Sweet Ovation winning (very smoothly) at Chepstow; and over six furlongs at Lingfield.

He was brought up at Hollybush Farm and arrived with Mike on the 23rd of October 2020 to be broken and ridden away; Mark would be pleased to show him to you on the move virtually any day Monday to Saturday, contact details at the head of this page.

Here he is trotting back behind Misu Pete immediately after his first canter on the morning of Wednesday 13th January; and this photo of the walk back shows something of his hind engagement.

And here he is working in behind that good yardstick Misu Pete, on only his eighth canter, in some poor weather on the morning of 20th January 2021

Here he is on the 7th of April in an extended canter that shows his fluidity of movement really well.

And this video shows him working with the multiple winner Arlecchino's Arc on the morning of 15th April 2021

And this photo is of him walking back on the 22nd April 2021

His work has been steadily progressive over the last month and Mark is put him on the track in a six furlong Novice Stake at Kempton on 24th of November2021; and he ran a race of considerably promise starting quite slowly and being around 12 lengths adrift of the pace turning in before running on strongly to take fourth close home in what could be an above Novice for the grade; he didn't quite run up to that level in his two further Maiden starts; and was then held up with a respiratory infection during February.

His first run in a Handicap came at Kempton off a mark of 65 over seven furlongs at the end of March; and he again showed ability and progression to be second, coming from the back in a tightly handicapped, competitive race.
