Jessica Fortt: “I never get bored of seeing a foal take its first breath, it’s a fantastic sight”

Jessica won the title of Employee of the Year and the Stud Staff Award at the Godolphin Stud & Stable Staff Awards. Watch Jessica in action at Dunraven Stud.


In the stud season Jessica is permanently glued to the foaling cameras and nothing is born without her being present.

Speaking about her job, Jessica said:
"I've been doing it a long time now and I still never ever get bored of the first sight of a foal and seeing a foal take its first breath, it's a fantastic, fantastic sight. I'll never get bored of it."
