Beschizza crowned leading rider at Fairgrounds Racecourse in USA
Adam Beschizza made the move to America 2 years ago after a successful career as a Jockey in the UK, to try pastures new.
Adam was the meet’s leading rider for the first time in only his second full year of riding at Fair Grounds. Beschizza, 26, won 82 races at the New Orleans oval finishing six wins ahead of James Graham.
“I’m overwhelmed, this last week I was holding my breath a little bit,” Beschizza said. “James had been a champion himself in the past. He’s a great competitor and he’s kept me honest right until the line. He can play with us young guns as well. There are a lot of people to thank and none of this would be possible without their help. My agent Liz Morris, she’s done a great job keeping myself in line and intact. A lot of credit goes to her. I really appreciate her as a person, we’ve became really close since I came to America.”
Adam, who is Racehorse Trainer Julia Feilden’s nephew, is a Graduate of our Flexible Learning Programme, which is 1 day release from school in Year 10 & 11 to complete the Diploma in Racehorse Care. For more information, click here
