Tell us about yourself…

I grew up in Norfolk surrounded by horses – as I’ve got older I’ve had more of an interest in Flat racing and bloodstock. I studied Equine Science and Thoroughbred Management at Oxford Brookes University and worked abroad including a year in Australia. Over the last two years I have been at the TBA in Newmarket in the role of Communications Executive.

A new challenge…

I’ve just started at Tweenhills and am looking forward to being part of the team as well as working with some top-class thoroughbreds from around the globe such as Zoustar. I’m really looking forward to meeting all our breeders and being part of hospitality events such as the The Lion’s Den at the December Mares Sale, which will be fascinating.

Hobbies and interests…

I’ve just spent a lot of time assembling flat-pack furniture in my new house! But aside from that the majority of my time is spent with horses – I’ve pinhooked a few Flat-bred foals in recent years and we have a couple of National Hunt mares at home. I also have my own horse for hunting and show jumping.

Favourite racehorse…

I feel like it’s too obvious but Enable! She is a phenomenal racemare and has an amazing public following. I watched her win her first King George at Ascot and it gave me goosebumps; the way she powered clear of a top-class field in the rain. It will be great to see her race again next year and then following her progeny.
