Travelling Head Lads

Geoff Snook – Travelling Head Lad

Geoff was originally an apprentice to Barry and has worked for the family for nearly fifty 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 thirty 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.

Mark Lashly – Travelling Head Lad
Mark is also a veteran of the Hills yard, having been here for over 20 years. He has travelled horses around Europe for us, and had his first trip to the Middle East last autumn when his beloved Afaak ran in Bahrain.

Mark Whitehouse – Travelling Head Lad
Mark is now in his third season with us, having joined from our next door neighbour William Muir. Mark has a wealth of experience behind him, and was also a regular partner at home of Phoenix Of Spain.
