Welcome to James Ferguson Racing Ltd

Nestled in Racing’s Headquarters lies James Ferguson Racing, located in the historic setting of Kremlin Cottage Stables.

James brings a wealth of knowledge to the table, having served his time under Racing greats such as Sir Mark Prescott and Jessica Harrington.

Since setting up training in 2019 James has highlighted himself as one of the leading young trainers in the country. In his first season he trained Zoetic to win The St Hughes’s Fillies Stakes (listed). This was only a flicker of what was to come. In his second season training he picked up his first Group 1 when El Bodegon made all to win the Criterium De Saint-Cloud (Group 1). Prior to this the 2yr old son of Kodiac won the Prix De Conde (Group 3) at Chantilly. James’ success with fillies was showcased again in 2020 when Qatar Racing Limited’s filly Mise En Scene took the Prestige Stakes (Group 3) at Goodwood. Other notable winners included First Folio who took The Pavers Foundation Catherine Memorial Sprint Heritage Handicap at York and earning £38,655 in prize money.

Should you feel like getting involved, please do not hesitate to drop the office a line.

James Ferguson Racing is committed to maximising the potential of every racehorse that comes into the yard.
