The March 2018 Dodson & Horrell Employee of the Month has been presented to Julie Fowler. The award was set up to recognise the hard work and dedication that the staff at 10-time Champion Trainer Paul Nicholls’ yard put in to get the horses to the track in peak condition. Harry Derham, Assistant Trainer and his panel of selectors chose the winner and Harry presented the prize. The winner receives a Dodson & Horrell gilet and a £30 gift voucher, both courtesy of Dodson & Horrell.
“Julie has been an incredibly long-standing member of the team and has been with us for 17 years now. Julie is very efficient and works hard. Probably one of her proudest moments in recent years was seeing her favourite horse Vicente win his second successive Scottish Grand National last year.” commented Harry.
Julie rides and looks after Vicente and will be keeping everything crossed that he can put in another good performance if he goes for the race again this season. Harry continued, “We feel she is a very worthy winner of this month’s award, her attendance record is second to none and her dedication was shown when the “beast from the east” arrived. Julie lives quite a drive from the yard, however she would not be defeated by some snow and trekked on to work, with just a phone call before she left to say she would be slightly late!”
Julie looks after the following horses:
Brelan d’As (FR)
Ibis du Rheu (FR)
Flic ou Voyou (FR)
