Welcome To Michael Dods Racing

Photo: Racehorse Trainer Michael DodsRacehorse Trainer Michael Dods trains at Denton Hall Stables situated in a quiet village just 4 miles outside of Darlington in peaceful County Durham countryside. It is ideally placed to reach all the northern racecourses including the new All Weather track at Newcastle opening in the spring of 2016.

Michael is assisted by his hard working wife Carole, Yard Manager Steve Alderson and an experienced and dedicated team.

2016 proved to be a very successful year for Denton Hall with 51 winners and over £750,000 in prize money. The highlight of the year was without doubt stable star Mecca’s Angel’s back to back win in the Group 1 Nunthorpe in August at York.

We look forward to welcoming you at the yard and seeing you on the racecourse throughout 2017.
