HARRY DERHAM

Assistant Trainer

Now embarking on his tenth season with Paul, Harry is about to enter his fifth season as Assistant Trainer. Formerly a conditional jockey for Paul, he enjoyed extensive success for the yard in the saddle with his highlight coming on Salubrious when winning the Martin Pipe Conditional hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.

Harry’s career in the saddle was cut short through his own choice when Clifford Baker encouraged him to think about becoming Assistant Trainer, and after a season shadowing his predecessor Tom Jonason, Harry took over the reins as assistant and has not looked back since.

Harry can regularly be spotted at the races by Paul’s side or representing him when he is unable to attend, entertaining owners or speaking to the media on Paul’s behalf.

When not at the races Harry is working closely alongside Paul and his senior team lead by Clifford in the yard ensuring the day to day running of the yard goes smoothly be it on the schooling ground, taking horses for racecourse gallops or working on the gallops at home.

Harry regularly writes a popular blog that can be seen on the website and engages with racing fans on social media with pictures and videos of the horses from the yard and gallops.

A lifelong lover of racing Harry lives and breathes the job and cares deeply about the ongoing success of Paul’s yard.
