Svend’s racing interest began as a veterinary student in Copenhagen in the 70’s and was massively expanded during his 10 years in Newmarket through the 80’s.
Svend has been a member of the veterinary team at Ascot Racecourse since 1985 and has been senior veterinary surgeon since 2000, amounting to approximately 800 race days!
Royal Ascot week in June is the highlight of the year with the best horses in the world assembling on Ascot. A week of high pressure but always something to look forward to.
More recently, he has also been included in the veterinary teams at Epsom Downs, Sandown Park and Kempton Park racecourses
