Welcome to 'Brooks Racing''Class A' Licensed Trainer
Brooks Racing is situated on 5 acre property on Racecourse Road in Cambridge, and as such is in close proximity to the Cambridge Jockey Club. The establishment comprises boxes for 25 horses as well as paddocks. The balance of the team, jumpers & breakers go out to his parents property which backs onto the famous Browne Hill.
Training, Breaking & Pre-Training
Mark Brooks spent 8 to 9 years breaking & pre training horses before taking out an owner trainers license and training some of the family steeplechasers.
That eventually led on to him taking on a public 'Class A' Trainers Licence but breaking & pre training continues to be a large part of the operation. The majority of the horses for our regular clients are educated here before continuing their racing careers in Singapore and Australia
To date, many successful horses have educated by Mark, including a number of Group 1 winners in NZ, Australia, Hong Kong & Singapore.
Successes To Date
During his short training career, Mark has already amassed over $650k in stake money, including 5 group or listed races.
