Mary has been involved in the racing industry most of her working life. She has worked at the grass roots level from riding out when younger and being travelling head girl, to riding in point to point races and training for a short time under permit. She changed direction, becoming a racing secretary, and then started a business advising trainers and jockeys on their accounting practices. Currently she still runs this business but it has expanded to include a variety of clients from outside the racing industry too. Joining the HEROS team from inception, she has known Grace for at least 25 years.
