Welcome to Micky Hammond Racing, the official site for one of the North’s premier horse racing trainers.
Gran Paradiso (8/1), ridden by Finian O’Toole, wins the MTREC Recruitment Novices’ Hurdle (2m4f) at Sedgefield for Mike and Eileen Newbould
Micky Hammond began his training career in 1990 from Tupgill Park near Middleham, after finishing a very successful career as a National Hunt jockey. Since 2002 the place that Micky calls home has been Oakwood Stables, a modern and welcoming 45 box yard that is bigger than it may first seem, peacefully positioned on the very edge of Middleham; he has recently taken on additional space at Sharp Hill Farm higher up the village, increasing the overall capacity of the yard to around 100 boxes. From these ideal purpose built bases he sends out his team of horses, with an experienced, confident, friendly and extremely hard working team of staff.
