Michael Dods trains at Denton Hall Stables, situated in the peaceful, picturesque village of Denton, just four miles outside of Darlington.

The 2021 campaign is proving another successful year for Michael Dods Racing, with the stable currently on the 55-winner mark for the season with another 100 entries placed, and there's still time to add to the winners' tally before the season ends. 

It's been great to see spectators returning to racecourses with the easing of coronavirus restrictions, and we are hugely grateful to all our owners for their support during unprecedented times. The staff have also shown tremendous dedication to keep the stable moving forward despite all the challenges.

Highlight of the season so far was Commanche Falls' thrilling victory in the Unibet Stewards' Cup at Glorious Goodwood, giving his owners a day they'll never forget. We've also been busy at the sales lately and bought some lovely yearlings.

Denton Hall is perfectly placed to reach all the northern racecourses and is close enough to the A1 to also venture further south.

Michael is assisted by his hard-working wife Carole, as well as highly experienced Yard Managers Steve Alderson and David Dickenson, and has a dedicated team behind him. We pride ourselves on being professional and friendly.

We train racehorses for individual owners, racing partnerships and we also have our own horse racing syndicate – Denton Hall Racing – for group ownership. In addition, we also launched our own Dods Racing Club towards the end of last year, giving members a value-for-money way of getting involved in the sport.

If you are interested in any of the forms of racehorse ownership please do contact the yard to discuss your requirements.

You’ll find regular updates on this site, including latest entries, winners, news updates – and even a blog by Barney McGrew! Please also follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for more bulletins.

Thanks for visiting; we hope you enjoy browsing our website.
