This month’s Dodson & Horrell Employee of the Month has been presented to Grace Jones. The award was set up to recognise the hard work and dedication that the staff at 11-times 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, which includes new pupil Assistant, Charlie Davies, 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.
Grace joined the team in March last year and although she didn’t have much previous experience within the racing industry, proved herself to be a good addition quickly and has built up some good partnerships with her horses, in particular My Way who Grace rides every day.
Harry commented “Grace has worked hard and shown a positive attitude towards her stable duties and the care of her horses, this has been noted over the last month both at home and particularly at the races where she has been efficient and turned out her horses to high standards. We would like to thank Grace for her hard work and look forward to her enjoying more success at the races in the future!”
Grace looks after the following horses:
- Cat Tiger
