Her horse Tea for Two is trained by her mother Jane Williams and stepfather Nick Williams. Lizzie said to the UK Press Association, “He’s tricky and is a difficult horse. Mum has always looked after him, been very quiet and slow with him and he’s just beginning to really come into himself now.” Jane said, “I’m thrilled for her. It’s important for girls to make it in racing and we set out to try to prove girls can win Grade Ones.”
