Pupils & Head Lads

Ollie Sangster – Pupil Assistant

Ollie joined us at the beginning of the 2017 season, and it continues the link between the Sangster and Hills family forged by Robert and Barry in the 1970’s. Ollie was Champion Amateur jockey in 2013, and prior to joining us worked at Lindsay Park Racing in Australia and for Watership Down Stud in this country.

Geoff Snook – Travelling Head Lad
Geoff was originally an apprentice to Barry and has worked for the family for forty six years. He looked after Rheingold and his all-time favourite horse to travel was Further Flight. He is a very familiar face on racecourses worldwide and has to be one of the best travelling head lads about.

John Burrows – Travelling Head Lad
John has worked for Barry and latterly Charlie for twenty eight years. Until recently John’s highlight during this time, was travelling Red Clubs when he won the Haydock Sprint Cup (John’s favourite track) – although that may have changed having travelled Muhaarar to win at Ascot.
