Clive has had racing in his blood since the day he was born. His father, Joe, was also a successful trainer at York, amassing nearly 500 winners. Racing wasn’t always Clive's passion. As a teenager he had his heart set on becoming a professional footballer, however, after spells at Middlesbrough, York City and Barnsley, tragedy struck when several ankle injuries and operations marked the end of what was sure to be a glorious career. Clive never gives in though and soon his passion turned to racing. During the 90's, Clive rode successfully as an amateur jockey for Sue Smith and Jimmy Fitzgerald, and has also ridden winners for Howard Johnson, Mick Easterby, Sir Robert Ogden and Richard Guest, whilst working as a National Accounts Manager for Blue chip companies, and then running a Livery yard with his wife Marti. Always hungry for success, Clive has ridden many times under rules against professionals and partnered 20 winners, and in numerous point-to-points and has amassed 100 winners. Clive Mulhall Racing is a family affair with Clive’s wife, Marti also playing a huge part in the business. A successful point-to-point trainer in her own right, Marti's role as Assistant Trainer is often under-estimated.
