2020 Godolphin Stud and Stable Staff Awards Finalist and NHC graduate Hayley Ashcroft

Hot on the heels of our previous article regarding the prestigious Godolphin Stud and Stable Staff Awards 2020 we share with you this evening an interview with Hayley, a finalist in the Rider / Groom category.

Hayley, 22, graduated from the National Horseracing College six years ago and is employed as Barn Leader at Manor House Stables LLP in Cheshire which involves taking responsibility for the welfare of the horses in her yard and leading the staff who care for and ride the horses.

The Awards, which take place in London on Monday (24 February 2020), are worth over £120,000 in prize money. They recognise and celebrate the unwavering dedication, hard work and passion which stud and stable staff offer the horses in their care day-in-day-out. They also recognise and celebrate the support and mentorship offered by stud and stable staff to their colleagues and to those entering the racing industry.
