On Friday 24th May 2019, we were delighted to present Thomas Hanratty with his National Horseracing College graduation certificate.
Now at the age of 36, Thomas was previously a tank engineer in the Army for 7 years. Looking for a change in career, Thomas took the plunge and has learnt all about racehorse care. Having not ridden a horse before starting his course, Thomas learnt how to ride a racehorse in our indoor school, which was his “favourite part of the course”.
With a huge passion for horseracing, he has today completed his 8 week, non-riding, foundation course in racehorse care and will now head to Lambourn to work for trainer Eve Johnson Houghton.
We wish him the best of luck for the future.
