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.
