Mark Johnston has equalled the all-time record number of British winners for a racehorse trainer.

Dr Richard Kimble won at Ripon to give the Scot his 4,193rd victory.

The 58-year-old has reached the mark set by the retired Richard Hannon senior, and it is only a matter of time before he breaks the record.

Johnston, who is based in the Yorkshire village of Middleham, trained his first winner in 1987 and his victories have earned £53m in prize money.

He moved closer to the landmark earlier on Saturday with 9-2 chance Quintada winning at Doncaster under Franny Norton.

Another 9-2 shot – Dr Richard Kimble, ridden by Joe Fanning – drew Johnston level with the record.

The trainer has a chance to break the record on Sunday, with Lynwood Gold at Pontefract (14:30 BST).
