Upon graduating Darley Flying Start, Amy Oberhauser (now Lanigan) took up a role at Darley’s Dalham Hall Stud in the marketing department, where she assisted with research for stallion marketing. In 2008 she became Racing Secretary to her husband, David Lanigan, who had gone out on his own as a trainer the previous year. The couple are now based at Kingsdown Stables in Lambourn, and David Lanigan Racing continues to achieve success, most notably with Main Sequence, who finished second in the 2012 Derby. Amy is in charge of the office, which involves duties as a racing secretary, paying wages, maintaining the company’s website and making entries and declarations. She liaises with owners which include Lord Lloyd-Webber, the Niarchos Family and Coolmore interests and works hands-on in the yard.
