There is a lot of fulfillment and satisfaction taken from watching foals grow, mature and being ridden away to making their racecourse debut and following their subsequent racing career, hopefully with success!
Growing up with her father’s passion Ruth is as enthusiastic and dedicated to continue breeding alongside training and currently has three mares.
