It is ideally placed to reach all the northern racecourses including the new All Weather track at Newcastle which opened in the spring of 2016.

Michael is assisted by his hard working wife Carole, Yard Manager Steve Alderson and an experienced and dedicated team.

2017 proved to be a record breaking year for Denton Hall with 62 winners and over £500,000 in prize money. The 2017 successes provide a great platform 2018 and the yard will be striving to build on these during the year. We had many exciting days in 2017. The dead heat at York in August with Holmeswood and Intense Romance being an unforgettable day especially as our apprentice Callum Rodriguez won the Ebor on Nakeeta which earned him a Stobart Lesters award for Ride of the Year. We have a full yard of exciting horses thanks to our very loyal owners. Paul Mulrennan, Andrew Mullen, Conner Beasley and Callum Rodriguez will again be in the saddle.

We look forward to welcoming you at the yard and seeing you on the racecourse throughout 2018.

Merry Xmas from Michael Dods Racing
