Lauren, from Great Barr in Birmingham, joined us straight from Northern Racing College in September 2013 and it wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that her arrival at the yard coincided with a big upturn in our fortunes.
She immediately fell in love with our beautiful grey gelding Pertuis, a horse she still insists on taking to the races every time he runs.
A natural in the saddle, Lauren quickly became a hugely popular member of Middleham’s racing community and proved to be a perfect ambassador for the yard as she led up around the northern tracks.
Loz left in December 2015 to work for Sophie Leech but thankfully within a year she was back in Middleham, she is now our Assistant Head Girl and is quick to pass on the benefit of her experience whenever it's needed.
Lauren was a finalist in the David Nicholson Newcomer category at the 2016 Godolphin Stud & Stable Staff awards, giving her some well deserved recognition for everything she's done for our yard.
