My name is Lynton Gomm, I am 24 years old, and I live in a small town in Lincolnshire, United Kingdom.
My passion for Horse Racing started at an early age. It was my grandad who really influenced me, I'd regularly spend the weekends at my grandparents whilst my parents were at work and I'd sit and study the days' racecards with him. Over time this led to me understanding more and more about the sport, from studying the form and the horse's previous run to the weight the horse was carrying and its stall draw. Fast forward to 2021 and here I am, writing a blog on something that I am very much involved in. Guess I can thank my grandad for that one!
But Horse Racing isn't just about winning money, it's a bonus of course, but the thrill of watching these machines compete is just different from any other sport. I have an ever-growing collection of horses which I have shares in, again not for the profit, but the feeling of being involved in the sport and the excitement you get every time you get to watch one of them run is something else.
Away from the sport, I graduated from university in 2019 with a Bachelor's Degree in CGI and Visual Effects, which although not continuing exactly down that path, I am currently trying to explore and further into a career. My background in writing stems initially from writing short stories as a child, which was furthered by my A-Level in English Language, and my writing at university. I have a keen interest in photography which I like to pursue whenever I travel somewhere, and I enjoy digital design alongside my writing, hence this blog. I'm hoping in the future this blog can turn into something special, and hopefully allow me to pursue a career in the horse racing industry.
