Malton Horsetown

The earliest record of racing taking place in Malton was in 1692 when it was reported a meeting taking place at Langton Wolds in the vicinity of Malton and Norton.

Today it is recorded that there is over 20 Trainers and more than 1000 horses in training.

Now here’s little secret, in fact there is only one trainer in Malton. You regularly read about ‘Malton’ trainers, but the majority of racing stables are actually situated in Norton.  

Everyday racehorses are put through their paces at the Langton Wold and Highfield Gallops, and early risers will come across strings of horses coming from and going to the gallops.

Middleham Horsetown

"When you hear the clatter of all the horses' hooves on the cobbles as they are taken out of their stables to train on the moor it seems as if time has stood still in Middleham".

The Wood family purchased the Manor of Middleham in 1662 and their accounts show that horse racing was held on Middleham Moor for numerous years.

In the 18th century Middleham held race meetings on High Moor. The first recorded meeting was held in 1739 and continued for the next 134 years.

Middleham has been home to a number of famous trainers including Neville Crump who won two National Hunt trainer’s championships, three Grand Nationals, five Scottish Nationals and three Whitbread Gold Cups. 

Today there are around 15 trainers based around Middleham with over 500 horses in training.
There are two other Horsetowns in England which are Newmarket and Lambourn. We will shortly be expanding into these areas to offer a range of beers celebrating their horse racing history both past and present
