In a special edtion of our #AscotAsks series, we chat to Sally Duckett the Live Reporter on our new Ascot Racecourse App, launched at Royal Ascot this year. Sally will report live from the Parade Ring on every raceday including the Betfair Weekend starting this Friday.
Sally’s wealth of horseracing knowledge, which we found out after chatting to her this week, is perfect for the live reporter.
She initially worked for National Hunt trainer, Robin Dickin and had a few rides under Rules for him and then, throughout her degree and after, she spent much of her time riding racehorses and in point-to-points.
After this, Sally worked for a couple of trainers including Mick Channon, and Charles Egerton, whom she became secretary for but decided she wasn’t organised enough to be a trainer’s secretary (the toughest job in racing!).
She then decided to enter the editing world and became a sub-editor at Raceform. From there, she went onto work at Darley Stud in its marketing department and then the Racing Post with its bloodstock advertising team. After three years she moved onto becoming editor of the Pacemaker magazine.
Sally was then lucky enough to be given the opportunity to run her own business, Thoroughbred Publishing and develop its magazine, International Thoroughbred which to this day is going from strength to strength.
