The Team

Lucy Blackburn and Becca Ffooks

Lucy joined the team here at Potwell 7 years ago, to help with the accounts and the management of the office.

This has given Rachael and I more time to develop the yard and to focus on training the horses without having to worry about the paperwork.

Lucy grew up in West Dorset and her family have been involved in horse racing for many years. They bred and own G For Ginger and Sam Brown. Lucy's husband, Jeremy, has shares in Duhallow Gesture and Coquelicot, and runs the newly formed Wessex Racing Club.

 Becca joined the team in September after working as a Head Lass in a pretraining yard for 3 years. Becca grew up in Somerset Eventing up to novice level and now enjoys retraining racehorses in her spare time as well as training a Point to Pointer. She rides out 2 lots each morning before coming in to the office.


Phone or email Lucy or Becca to find out information about ownership, the Racing Club, VAT returns, visits to the yard, job applications or accounts.
