How long have you worked for Herringswell Stables? Since 2002
How did you become involved with horses? I grew up in Newmarket and my family had horses and ponies.
What was your first racing-related job? I rode out while still at school for Harry Thomson-Jones in Newmarket. He was one of the biggest steeplechase trainers in England at the time. He had some of the top ‘chasers, Tingle Creek among them.
What is your favorite racing-related memory? Many great memories over the years, but the first one that immediately comes to mind was Nashwan winning the Epsom Derby. I was also a major fan of our other runner Prince Of Dance who finished about fifth and sadly died a week later from a tumor on his spine.
Of course the best racing memories from working at Herringswell were Better Talk Now winning the Breeders Cup and then going on to run in four more consecutive renewals. Animal Kingdom winning the Kentucky Derby and Dubai World Cup. There are too many more to mention in a short paragraph!
