Mick Appleby has been involved with horse racing for nearly 30 years. Over these years, he has gained an enormous amount of experience and knowledge from his work with horses – both in training and horse management.

Mick was stable jockey for John Manners for 3 years, riding numerous winners. He left there to become head lad for Roger Curtis for a short period of time.

In 2008, Mick was offered a fantastic opportunity as head lad at Andrew Blading’s Kingsclere Stables. Here he worked with top-class horses, gaining much experience in all aspects of training race horses.

In June 2010, Mick went out on his own for the remainder of the season, gaining 3 winners and a few placed horses; showing a profit of £106 to a £1 level stake. The 2011 season went successfully having 20 winners and numerous placed horses.

Throughout 2012 and 2013 Mick and his team continued building on their successes, with winners Louchantanks, The Lockmaster, Stellar Express, Demora and Art Scholar – who landed the November Handicap.

The yard carried on growing for the next few years and built up a great team of youth and experience.

In 2014, Mick had his first Group Winner in Danzeno in the Group 3 Chip Chase at Newcastle. In the same year he achieved 91 winners and was runner-up in the all-weather championships.

He was crowned the Champion Trainer at Southwell in 2014 and 2015. 2015 brought Mick 101 winners and many placed horses in exciting racing.
