Lauri Wray loves horses but her passion for racing has caused her heartache and battered her body.

However, she keeps bouncing back and, in Allez Chival, she has a horse that has taken her back to the Sydney stage as a trainer where she rode with success.

“I never thought I would have a Randwick runner as a trainer. I rode eight winners in the city but this is a lot different,” Wray said.
