MICHAEL ANN EWING RACING
Michael Ann Ewing is a trainer I've cashed a lot of tickets on over the years. She came to Santa Anita a couple years ago, she's been to Del Mar, she sends out live horses. She gets the job done. She's low profile, thats why her horses don't get bet, but she's a good trainer.
Passionate. Ambitious. Committed.
Michael Ann Ewing Racing is team of knowledgeable horsemen and women who all share a love for horses and a passion for racing.
We know that not all horses will get to the winners circle the same way, our goal is to help each horse find their own path. To do so, we provide our horses with both knowledgeable care in the barn and a comprehensive education on the racetrack. As a smaller stable, we are able to take the time to get to know each individual horse and tailor our training program to meet the needs of that horse. We are fortunate to have access to grass gallops, paddocks for turnout, a nearby swimming pool and rehab facilities in addition to the racetrack.
Michael Ann Ewing
Michael Ann Ewing discovered her love for horses early in life and has successfully competed and excelled in a number of equine disciplines. She started in pony club as a young child before continuing on in the show arena.
In 2000, Michael and her husband, Jim, made the jump into thoroughbred ownership. She was instantly hooked and it was not long before she took an assistant position under Robert Hess Jr. She successfully ran his barn at a number of racetracks before taking out her own trainer's license in 2010.
Michael is a sharp horsewoman who practices a hands-on approach to training. Having been both an owner and trainer, Michael is sensitive to her client's needs for open and honest communication. She is also careful to find the balance between providing quality horse care and managing expenses effectively. Many of Michael's employees have been a part of her operation since the beginning, which speaks as a testament to both her character and leadership.
Kelsey grew up riding show horses and eventers, but transitioned to galloping on the track while attending university. After graduating with a degree in both Equine Management and Economics, Kelsey joined the team in 2016. She helps run the day to day training as well as shipping and saddling horses at the races.
WHY MAE RACING?
Every horse has a training regime that has been tailored to the specific needs and goals of that horse. Our facilities allow us access to two racetracks, a large grass gallop as well as a nearby swimming pool.

In addition to our local Kentucky trakcs, Keeneland, Churchill, Ellis, Kentucky Downs, Turfway, our central location makes it an easy commute to Indiana Grand, all of the Ohio tracks, Arlington Park, Presque Isle, Mountaineer, Laurel Park and even Woodbine is a relatively easy drive.
EXCEPTIONAL HORSE CARE
All of our horses are cared for like they are our own. They are bedded deep, fed well and groomed to the nines. We are fortunate to also have access to several turn out paddocks so that our horses can enjoy some time just being a horse.
