Tim Easterby

Tim Easterby (born 13 September 1961) is a British racehorse trainer based in North Yorkshire.

TIM EASTERBY took over the famous Habton Grange stables in North Yorkshire from his father, Peter Easterby, in February 1996. Tim Easterby has trained a Classic winner in Bollin Eric, triumphant in the 2002 St Leger Stakes at Doncaster and had Group 1 stardom with speed merchants Pipalong, Fayr Jag and Somnus.

His father trained the brilliant Sea Pigeon, the dual Champion Hurdle winner, who also landed two Chester Cups and, at the age of nine, memorably defied top-weight of 10st to win the 1979 Ebor Handicap at York. Peter Easterby also trained Night Nurse, who was successful in the Champion Hurdle on two occasions and in 1981 was narrowly denied a Cheltenham Gold Cup triumph by Little Owl ironically also trained by Peter Easterby.

Tim's uncle Mick Easterby is also a racehorse trainer.
