In Donald's words 'Over the past 10 years Adrian has become the single most important part of the team along with a friend and confidant.'
As a work rider Adrian is irreplaceable and was the making of horses such as Peddler's Cross and Cinders And Ashes. Without exception he leads all racecourse gallops and serious pieces of work which ensures it is always done correctly. Importantly as a judge, if he says one is nice or no good then he is rarely wrong. He is also the first man to take charge of educating the youngsters in the jumping department.
Adrian represents Donald regularly at the races, jockeys rely on his advice and feel free to ring him to find out more about the horses they are riding. With regards to the jockeys, this goes to the extent of them saying 'never mind you, what does Ado say?'
TRAVELLING HEAD LAD
Ludo is one of the longest serving members of the team, having been here for over 10 years. I don't think that anyone in the Racing Industry could disagree that he is one of the best Travelling Head Lads in the country. His attention to detail regarding not only the welfare of the horses in his care but most notably 'turnout' is second to none.
In his spare time he is a keen and accomplished runner.
ASSISTANT TRAVELLING HEAD LAD
Mark has been here at Bankhouse for nearly 6 years. An excellent horseman with a wealth of experience.
ASSISTANT HEAD GROOM
Lisa is enjoying her more supervisory roll and is making a really good job of it too. Her favourite horse was Lastbutnotleast who has now retired to stud. Lisa is looking forward to her offspring and hopes they are as good as their mum when they arrive.
