Three Feathers Cup

The Betfair Three Feathers Cup at Lingfield Park will launch the 2017 Racing Staff Week.  The charity race, in which trainers nominate members of their staff to ride, will complement the established Clock Tower Cup race for stable staff.

The Three Feathers Cup will be run over one and a half miles, which will give staff working in jumps yards an opportunity to ride, as the Clock Tower Cup at Doncaster later in Racing Staff Week is over seven furlongs.

 Rosie Lampard Trainer: Nick Lampard
Horse: Asker
County: Wiltshire

I learnt to ride when I was 11, which lead to my love for horses. I got my first job in racing when I was just 17; it was for a point to point trainer called Pete Jones. I then started to ride out for Jeremy Tree where I met my husband Nick. In 1989 Nick and I set up a small yard of our own, we initially had a few pointers and Nick then progressed to train under rules. I stopped riding for 5 years as I lost a lot of confidence after a few falls. Last year I purchased Asker “Archie” and he has ignited my spark to love riding again.
