"Middleham Park Racing have really led the way for syndicates and have had winners at all levels. What MPR offer is a chance for people to get into ownership who may otherwise not be able to and their results speak for themselves. It was an honour to secure their milestone 800th winner for them."
Kevin Ryan has established himself as one of the most respected racehorse trainers in the profession. Since setting up in 1998, the former jump jockey has seen his yard grow to 120 boxes and with it success has followed.
Based in the historic racing area of Hambleton near Thirsk, he has enjoyed multiple Group 1 success including the Prix de l’Abbaye, the Racing Post Trophy, the Middle Park Stakes and Irish Champion Stakes. Having now trained 28 Group winners, Kevin has firmly established himself among the top trainers in Britain. As well as Group performers he has also trained 5 Royal Ascot winners, 3 Ayr Gold Cup Winners and has a host of other big races to his name, both at home and internationally. After a near miss in the 2013 2000 Guineas, Kevin became a classic winning trainer as The Grey Gatsby emphatically beat a strong field in the Prix Du Jockey Club (French Derby) in 2015.
With the yard situated on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors, both horse and owner are treated to the best of what Yorkshire has to offer. The yard is sat on Sutton Bank, some 978ft above sea level, and is surrounded by natural forestry. This offers a wonderful environment where the horses are surrounded by fresh, clean air and have the enjoyment of passing through the forest on a daily basis.
The yard has a friendly welcoming atmosphere, a good team and is very family orientated: Kevin’s wife Jill works in the office whilst his son Adam is Assistant Trainer.
