This month was the first time that the Dodson & Horrell Employee of the Month has been presented, following the recent announcement of Dodson & Horrell feeding all of the horses at 10-time champion trainer Paul Nicholls’ yard based in Somerset. The award is to recognise the hard work and dedication that the staff at Paul Nicholls’ yard put in to get the horses to the track in peak condition. Harry Derham, Assistant Trainer, selected the winner and presented the award. The winner receives a Dodson & Horrell gilet and a £30 voucher of their choice courtesy of Dodson & Horrell and Harry also presented the winner with a cake to celebrate, which was shared with all the team.
“This month I have chosen Henry as he is new this season and he has a very positive attitude to his work; he rides well and always tries his best in all he does. He is a thoroughly nice guy and no one in the yard would ever have a bad word to say about him,” Harry explained.
20-year-old Henry Morshead is in his first season at Paul’s yard as a conditional jockey, having started in July this year, and is absolutely loving his time at Ditcheat, Somerset. “The best thing about working here is the team, they are great, and of course getting to ride some seriously class horses, schooling them is the best part of the job,” Henry commented
Speaking about the Dodson & Horrell Employee of the month Award Henry said, “It is such a good idea and really nice to have reward for all our hard work and gives us all something to work towards, I had no idea I was going to win but I had heard there was going to be cake so I was looking forward to that!”
Henry looks after the following horses:
High Secret (IRE)
Favorito Buck’s (FR)
