UK Jockeys Jump For Joy

Wednesday, 14th November 2012

In the UK, 9 jockeys who ride on the flat are set to "experience life over the jumps" in a special 'Flat Jockeys' Handicap Hurdle at Lingfield, reports sportinglife.com. Martin Harley, Eddie Ahern, Kirsty Milczarek, Fergus Sweeney and Robbie Fitzpatrick are all part of the line-up with Fitzpatrick commenting: "I've been schooling horses on and off for years, but when I saw this race was coming up I wanted to give it a go in a real race … It'll be a bit of craic but we're in it to win it. I mentioned the race to Richard Guest a few weeks ago and he entered three and told me I could pick the one I wanted - I went for the safest one!"
