Karen Mais

Accounts Manager

Our accounts manager Karen moved to Middleham in 1996 to work with Micky.


Previously, she had worked as a part-qualified accountant for a conveyor belting manufacturer in Hull, however the lure of the Dales was too strong and she joined the yard as secretary.


Karen's role has varied as necessary over the years, she currently deals with all our accounts, Weatherbys and BHA matters, combining her racing knowledge with her ability for numeracy and administration. The team would be lost without her and fellow racing secretaries hold her in high regard.

Karen is married to Chris and they have twins, Harvey and Francesca, who were born in 2005.


“I love being involved with the yard and I have made many friends over the years," says Karen. "The greatest pleasure is seeing the yard have winners and seeing everybody’s efforts culminating in success.”
