Thomas is Warwick born and raised and a previous pupil assistant trainer to Violet & Frank Jordan before moving into racecourse administration after graduating from Loughborough University with a degree in International Business. Thomas is a keen sportsman outside of work and has ridden in numerous charity races. He started as the Operations Executive here at Warwick Racecourse. He has a huge passion for horse racing and the job became available shortly after Thomas graduated, so seemed the most logical next step and he hasn't looked back since! Well, maybe a few times when he wishes he was four stone lighter to race ride on the flat! Fun Fact – Thomas has ridden in charity races at the Cheltenham & Punchestown Festivals.
CLERK OF THE COURSE
OPERATIONS & Events EXECUTIVE
Ollie joined Warwick Racecourse in December 21 as our new Operations & Events Executive. Although this is his first job in racing, Ollie brings with him a wealth of experience organising successful events and maintaining award winning facilities at a variety of venues.
Growing up in South West Worcestershire, Ollie has been attending race meetings with family and friends from a young age and he is excited to have the opportunity to forge a career in an industry he is hugely passionate about.
Outside of racing Ollie enjoys any kind of sport particularly golf and cricket. Playing the latter for his local village team Elmley Castle. He also enjoys time spent down his allotment growing his own fruit & veg as well as brewing (and drinking) his own cider and plum wine.
Customer relations executive
Alastair started in December 2019 coming from Weatherbys where he used to produce racecards for racecourses around the country. Alastair is a local lad from Balsall Common and is a huge racing fan. He’s followed the sport from a very young age from watching the races with his Grandad and has been a fan ever since. He’s a keen equestrian and competes in Show Jumping up to Foxhunter level on his Dutch Warmblood Utah XI. His other hobbies include Rugby, Cricket and Tennis which he plays at his local Balsall & Berkswell clubs. He graduated from Hartpury University, studying BA(Hons) Equine Business Management, with the hope of working in the Horse Racing Industry, so his career is currently going to plan. Fun Fact – He once raced at Warwick in a pony race on his Chestnut Mare Minnie, going off favourite but finished tailed off!
HOSPITALITY AND EVENT COORDINATOR
Anna- Lisa Has been involved in racing for 16 years. Roughly 10 brilliant seasons at a local trainer Robin Dickin, this is where she learnt so much and it really ignited her love of racing. She then spent 5 years at Cheltenham as a full time receptionist (memories of a Cheltenham Racecourse receptionist to be written) and in August 2021 moved over to Warwick racecourse. Anna- Lisa enjoys looking after her allotment and holidaying in her caravan!!
Vicky joined us in June 2022 as Marketing Executive. Having lived in Warwick most of her life, Vicky is very familiar with Warwick Racecourse and the excitement it brings to the town on race days. Vicky has a wealth of experience in Marketing gained over the last 15 years and is looking forward to immersing herself in the Jockey Club world and learning all about horseracing.
NATIONAL HOSPITALITY SALES EXECUTIVE
Billy is the latest member of the team joining us in August 2023. Billy has joined us all the way from Spain where he lived, studied, and worked for the past few years. Despite living in Spain up until recently he never lost touch with the horse racing season and always followed the jumps season closely. As well as being a keen jumps racing fan, he is an avid fan of Manchester United, something which has divided opinion around the office! He’s settled into his new role quickly and found his feet by joining a local Gaelic Football team, not losing touch with his Irish side. He shocked us all when we found out he could speak fluent Spanish during his first week!
