TOM LACEY has made a steady start to the season with eight winners from his 73 runners but his patient approach invariably pays dividends as the season goes on and he has shown that can place his Ledbury team to good effect.
Lacey notched up 38 winners and £377,918 in prize money in 2018-19 and that numerically was one less than his previous season and he sees this season as one for putting the building blocks in place.
Tom said: “The horses have been running well and we have got an awful lot of young horses. We only have 13 with handicap mark and the handicapper has most of them. I always thought this season was going to be a building season and you have got to make these horse and you can’t go gung ho with them.”
Lacey has plenty of raw material under his care that could be putting their names up in lights in the coming months and kindly spoke to Tony Elves of ATR about those he hopes can carry him and his team forward.
