Welcome to Foulrice Park Racing – where owners come first


As a racehorse owner, your priority will be the welfare of your horse.  That means working with the best trainers, using the highest quality facilities and understanding how to get the most from your horse.

About Us


Foulrice Park Racing was set up in 2010 by trainer Patrick Holmes in conjunction with his business partners Colin and Ailsa Stirling. Initially the operation was established from leased premises near Malton but in March 2013 we moved to owned facilities in Middleham which will be the long term home for the business.

Little Spigot is a purpose built yard perfectly situated between the High and Low Moor gallops in the centre of the Middleham Racing Centre. The site has been fully refurbished and modernised to create a first class environment for the training of both flat and National Hunt Horses.

Our Mission


The underpinning ethos of Patrick’s approach is to provide a very personal and bespoke service to his owners, recognising that each will have different motivations for being involved in the sport and a different investment appetite. Some will dream of Cheltenham, Ascot and York while others will be happy having fun around the Northern circuit. The key is setting clear objectives which then have to be supported by regular communication to ensure that the owners’ requirements are constantly being met.

Given that we are only a small yard with a current capacity of around 25 horses we want all our owners to feel involved and a part of the Foulrice community. Through the website, twitter, email updates and regular Open Days we seek to keep everyone up to date with entries, runners and news – as a result we hope to engender a club atmosphere and that owners will develop a broader interest in the yard beyond their own horses.
