Writing


Debbie began her freelance writing career producing form studies for the website and text service of UK satellite racing channel, Attheraces (now Sky Sports Racing), covering all the major meetings including the Aintree and Cheltenham Festivals, the Epsom Derby and Royal Ascot. She continues to write form guides for UK Arabian racing which are published in the Arabian Racing Organisation and Weatherbys racecards and reproduced in the Racing Post. 


In 2022, having written form guides for the Obaiya Arabian Classic since it's inception as part of the Saudi Cup meeting, she joined the Saudi Cup Notes Team, specialising, though not exclusive to, the two Arabian races, the Obaiya Arabian Classic and the Al Mneefeah Cup.


A winner of the Dubai International Arabian Races Feature Article Award on her first attempt in 2012, she won again in 2015, having been runner-up in 2014. She was also runner-up in the online category in  2013.   

 

Since April 2015 she is the editor and chief photographer of the digital magazine The Arabian Racehorse - the only  publication to offer full  coverage of the UK Arabian racing season, which  is circulated worldwide through the digital platform issuu.com. Since the start of the 2020 ARO season The Arabian Racehorse partnered with Equine MediRecord to produce a series of video podcasts reviewing and previewing the races, which are available on YouTube. Links can be found on The Arabian Racehorse's own dedicated website and through Equine MediRecord's YouTube channel.
