Jennie Durrans

Work Rider

Jennie is a Yorkshire las who started her racing career straight out of school. 


Aged 16 she took a trip to work in Ocala in Florida and on return headed to Newmarket where she spent 12 years working for some of the top trainers - to name drop just a few - James Fanshawe and William Haggis, and being lucky enough to ride some Group class horses at the same time. 


In 2017 Jennie decided to head back to her roots, bought a house in Catterick and is here to stay. Although most of her career has been spent in flat racing she now admits that jump racing is her favourite.


The Rutland Rebel, Bell o The Dales and Knocknamona are among Jennies favourite horses and York is her favourite track. 


Her hidden talent is being a Florist!


When Jennie is not working she events and enjoys retraining Finlay her ex racehorse.
