Karen Tutty Racing

Meet The Team

Left to right: Claire Sutcliffe, Gemma Tutty, Karen Tutty & Rebecca Dowson


Gemma Tutty is the daughter of Karen and Nigel. She is Apprentice Jockey to the yard and has ridden more than 20 winners for us. She is a valuable member of the team because she brings with her a wealth of experience from other yards and has done a lot of work with our younger horses.

Karen Tutty is the the boss yet she mucks out and rides out every day. She does all her own office work along with driving the lorry to the races and running a successful training stables. You would struggle to meet a more hardworking trainer!

Rebecca Dowson is a full time stable lass for the yard. She has previously evented to 3* level and ridden around Bramham Horse Trials. She has been a great asset to the team by teaching horses to jump and schooling those needing some flatwork. Rebecca is currently on maternity leave. We congratulate her on the birth of her son Freddie James Dowson.

Sophie Littlefair works as a full-time stable lass for the yard. She takes great pride in turning the horses out to a high standard at the races and does a great job riding out and on the yard. Her riding has improved massively in just a short time here and she is now riding work on a regular basis.

Claire Sutcliffe no longer rides out with us but is still in charge of paying the wages.
