Welcome To Michael Dods Racing

Photo: Racehorse Trainer Michael DodsRacehorse Trainer Michael Dods trains at Denton Hall Stables situated in a quiet village just 4 miles outside of Darlington in peaceful County Durham countryside. It is ideally placed to reach all the northern racecourses.

Michael is assisted by his hard-working wife Carole, Yard Managers Steve Alderson & David Dickenson and an experienced and dedicated team.

2018 proved to be a record-breaking year for Denton Hall with 53 winners and over a million pounds in prize money. The 2018 success provides a great platform and in 2019 the yard will be striving to build on these during the year.

We had many exciting days in 2018; winning the Palace House with Mabs Cross, also beaten a pixel in the Nunthorpe, Sophie winning the Queen Mother Cup at York and of course Mabs Cross winning the Prix de l’Abbaye at Longchamp are but a few of the days.

Mabs Cross being voted the Cartier Sprinter of the year and the ROA Outstanding Sprinter are highlights we will never forget.

We will be glad to see Paul Mulrennan back from injury in 2019 and he will share the rides with Callum Rodriguez, Conner Beasley, Andrew Mullen and stable apprentice Paula Muir, a great team of jockeys.

We look forward to welcoming you at the yard and seeing you on the racecourse throughout 2019.
