Racehorse Lotto Trainers
Racehorse Lotto works with a network of trainers around the country to ensure that we can create tailored ownership packages for our winners. See below for details on the trainers we work with.
Mark Johnston is one of Britain’s leading racehorse trainers, having become the first Flat trainer to send out more than 200 winners in a season (2009), a feat which he has, to date, repeated in 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2017, 2018 and 2019. On August 23, 2018, Mark became the winningmost trainer in British racing history when he saddled his 4,194th winner. Uniquely, he has trained more than 100 British winners for 27 consecutive seasons, achieving success in British and Irish Classics and in numerous Group One races.
Jonjo O’Neill continues to enjoy one of the most successful careers in horseracing. As a jockey and dual-purpose trainer he has reached virtually every height this great sport has to offer. Currently in his 20th season at this state-of-the-art Jackdaws Castle, Jonjo has joined an elite band of trainers with 2,000 winners, among them 26 Cheltenham Festival successes and, famously in April 2010, the Grand National at Aintree with Don’t Push It and 2012 the Cheltenham Gold Cup with Synchronised.
Roger Varian is a Classic winning racehorse trainer now in his tenth season. He made an immediate impact on the profession claiming Group 1 success in his first season when Nahrain won the Prix de l'Opera in 2011. Since then he has shown remarkable consistency amassing over 900 winners and has registered Group 1 victories every season he has trained bar one.
Eve Johnson Houghton
Eve started training in 2007 and had a flying start with 22 winners and has continued on an upward curve ever since, consolidating her position as a leading lady trainer. The 2018 season saw Eve scale new heights with her breakthrough Group 1 & Royal Ascot winner Accidental Agent who scored in fine style in the Queen Anne stakes. In recent seasons team Woodway has also had other notable successes from the likes of The Cheka, What About Carlo, Scarlet Dragon & Magnolia Springs.
James Ferguson is one of the latest trainers to take up their licence in Newmarket. He sent out his first runner from Saville House Stables in November and has since saddled four winners. James, son of John Ferguson, initially assisted his father before working under a number of leading industry figures including Sir Mark Prescott, Charlie Appleby and Jessica Harrington. The four-year-old Arabian King has provided James with three wins thus far and looks to be an exciting prospect given his improvement in recent form following the switch to a longer trip.
Tom Clover Racing is the up and coming training business launched at the end of 2016 by Tom and his wife Jackie. Highlights for Tom and Jackie to date include Celsius’ victory at Glorious Goodwood, Hunni taking the £40,000 EBF Fillies’ Nursery at Newmarket and the exploits of 6,000gns yearling buy Gypsy Spirit who finished placed in no less than five Stakes races. Prizemoney has increased year on year and the team are already looking forward to the 2020 season and beyond.
