Gail Haywood - Trainer
Having ridden ponies since the age of 5 and being obsessed with horse racing before then, Gail started to ride out at the age of 13, for renowned horseman and trainer Neil Kernick (son of the legendary Sid Kernick, who has recently been described on Channel 4 Racing by Sir Mark Prescott as "..a genius").
Taking Mr Kernick's advice to gain as much experience as possible and to learn as much as possible from as many different people as she could, Gail has ridden out and worked for over 13 different trainers over a 25 year period and rode Point to Pointing whilst studying at University.
In 2007 Gail relinquished her position as Racing Secretary to Victor Dartnall to fulfill a lifetime's ambition to train her own horses and GGH racing was born.
Now in its seventh season GGH Racing has gone from strength to strength, with the granting of a Full National Hunt Licence in 2014. The horses have run consistently well over the past six seasons achieving and maintaining a winning strike rate of 18%.
