Emma Lavelle - Horse Racing Trainer
OUR HISTORY WITH EMMA
We have had 3 horses with Emma since the Club started. Our first season we had Demographic, a fine champion of the Club winning 2 races for us and being placed numerous times. He was such a character and was very popular in the Club. He was retired healthy and happy at the age of 9 as he seemed to have lost his passion for his racing. We then had a lovely big chestnut mare called Mythical Legend who won for us in fine style at Market Rasen before sadly suffering a career ending tendon injury. She has now turned her foot to eventing. Reelingintheyears joined the Club next, a talented young horse who won on his hurdling debut. It was later discovered that he suffered from a rare heart condition so was retired from racing on medical advice. Emma has been a very popular trainer for the Club and we look forward to having more horses with her in the future.
ABOUT EMMA LAVELLE
Emma has been training predominantly National Hunt horses for the last 18 years and prior to that was Assistant Trainer to Toby Balding, and had a stint in America working for Shug McGaughey. She has recently moved from Hatherden Stables near Andover to her new base Bonita Racing Stables in Ogbourne Maizey, near Marlborough - a training establishment with a huge history of success. She has trained winners at both the Aintree and Cheltenham Festivals and with the wonderful gallops and training facilities that Bonita Stables offers we very much hope that there will be many more to come.
