Apart from being my wife Liz Curtin is a full business partner in Lilypad Racing Ltd. Starting with only a basic knowledge of greyhound racing through visiting the local track with her family, she has quickly blossomed into an accomplished handler and forms the ‘Rock’ that the Curtin family business is built upon.
I am the first to admit that Liz is not only my wife, my soul mate, my business Partner, she is also an integral figure and the driving force behind all that we do!! All our Owners existing and new would tell you that Liz is totally commited all day every day!!
Although perhaps biased, I believe the relationship she forms with the dogs in our care, along with an incredible work ethic and her ability to integrate with people in all aspects of the sport makes her a very popular member of our Team. All the Owners will vouch for Lizs efforts and allhave been heard to sing her praises on a regular basis. She is a very socialablewoman and enjoys the day to day banter of the kennel and the race track.
Her hard work and the skills she has developed would see her earn a place in any kennel in this country and I’m proud of the handler she has become. Also very proficient in rehabilitating injured Greyhounds Liz can boast remarkable achievement in many cases with Dogs not expected to race again. She is also quite brilliant with our brood Bitches and their pups. She is always on hand to see the bitches through the whelping process and is totally proficient in every aspectofaftercare ofboth Mum and pups.!
Not a total workaholic Liz likes nothing more than spending time with her grandsons Tyler and Joshua and her granddaughter Ava but has also been known to enjoy the odd ‘tipple’ and a ‘spin’ on the dance floor!!
