Leanne, a graduate of the NHC in 2000, then went on to complete her Level 2 Apprenticeship. “I’m being paid to do my hobby”, is how Leanne describes her job at Jedd O’Keeffe Racing. Leanne is being incredibly modest for she has devoted more than 20 years of her life to the horseracing industry and what she does is so much more than a job.
Leanne was a finalist in the Leadership category of the Godolphin Stud and Stable Staff Awards 2020. Leanne’s role is all encompassing; every working day she rolls her sleeves up and gets stuck into all that is required to ensure the 60-horse yard runs smoothly and the horses are fit and healthy. In addition you’ll find her astride several horses every morning putting them through their paces on the gallops. And around what is already a very demanding role she nurtures and develops younger members of the team, an aspect of her position she is hugely passionate about.
