Ollie Fowlston to Run Dullingham Park for Clipper Group

Ollie Fowlston is leaving Tattersalls to join Steve Parkin’s Clipper Group as managing director at Dullingham Park, the 90-acre stud based just outside Newmarket.

Following 25 years at Tattersalls, Fowlston, whose auctioneering has led him to sell horses in the UK, Ireland, Australia, Jamaica and Dubai, will take up his new role in June on the completion of this season’s yearling inspections. 

Parkin, whose horses run in the all-grey silks of Clipper Logistics, said, “We are delighted that Ollie is coming to join the team. He brings a wealth of knowledge and integrity from his time working at such a reputable company as Tattersalls. We have big plans for the future at Dullingham Park and, with Ollie at the helm, we have the right man to take things forward.” 

Dullingham Park was previously owned by former trainer Mark Tompkins and was bought last year by Parkin, who also owns Branton Court Stud in Yorkshire. The operation was represented by its first homebred group winner last year when Dramatised (Ire) (Showcasing {GB}) won the G2 Queen Mary S. at Royal Ascot.

Fowlston commented, “Dullingham Park is a very exciting venture within the Clipper Group and I can’t wait to get started in my new role working for Steve Parkin and Joe Foley. As a group, I’m sure we will be doing plenty of business with Tattersalls, so it’s a case of ‘Au Revoir’ and not ‘Goodbye’.”

He continued, “Park Paddocks is a truly remarkable arena and I will leave Tattersalls with nothing but very fond memories. I cannot thank Edmond Mahony and my colleagues at Tattersalls enough for my amazing 25 years with the company.” 

Edmond Mahony added, “It has been an absolute pleasure working with and selling horses alongside Ollie for the best part of 25 years. We will all be very sad to see him go. But this represents a wonderful opportunity for Ollie, so I and everyone at Tattersalls wish him all the very best in the future and look forward to seeing plenty more of him at Park Paddocks in the coming years.”
