Kitty's Story

Kitty left More House in 2012 after doing A Levels in Geography, History and Classical Civilisation. She had always intended to go on to read History at university but changed her mind at the last minute choosing sports journalism at the University of the Arts, London. During her time at university she managed to get work experience at Horse & Hound, the Daily Mirror and the Daily Mail and decided she wanted to combine her love of horse racing with her ambition to become a journalist.

She started work at the Racing Post in November 2017, first as a news reporter and then as a bloodstock journalist, focusing on the breeding of racehorses.

Her job involves reporting on the sales of young horses mainly in both England and France. During her time at the Racing Post she has travelled to various countries around Europe. The racing and bloodstock industries contribute around £4 billion to the British economy every year, while you get stallions breeding with mares for six-figure sums and racing itself is the second biggest spectator sport in England after football.

Bloodstock journalism is a really exciting industry to be part of and I feel very lucky to work in it.
