How did you get into racing?
I got into racing through someone mentioning to me that I was the right size to be a jockey. I had no idea how to get into racing and I had never sat or touched a horse in my life; so I asked them how to get into it and they explained I had to go to the British Racing School. I did as they said and spent 14 weeks there before going straight to Sir Mark Prescott’s.
What training have you done?
I have put countless hours and hard work into being a jockey. I originally spent 14 weeks at the racing school, and then upon finishing there I undertook other training such as stalls courses and fitness sessions. I also see a jockey coach four times a week for one hour to help me improve and become the best I can be.
Do you have a career ambition?
I think it is every jockey’s dream to become champion jockey but that is very ambitious, so I set myself smaller targets such as numbers of winners and amounts of rides. However the ultimate long-term goal I hope to achieve would be riding every day and travelling around the country enjoying my riding.
Why do you enjoy your job?
There are many reasons why I love my job, one of them being you never stop learning and every day brings something different. However without a doubt for me what I enjoy the most is the satisfaction of crossing the line in front and the feeling you get after winning a race.
