 Horseracing’s current champions of the saddle reflect on life as a Jockey

Richard Johnson with Champion Jockey trophy  Pic Dan Abraham - focusonracing.com  Sandown 28.4.18 “My main ambition was to try to retain the championship, so we’ve managed to do that and it’s fantastic. I’ve had my second biggest number of winners in a season, so I’m delighted and it’s a massive thanks to everyone who’s supported me and helped me get there. I’m loving what I do, and lucky to have great support from lots of people. There are lots of young lads riding well and riding lots of winners, so I’ve got to concentrate on each day and riding as many winners as anybody else. This is what I’ve only ever wanted to do, so to do it, and enjoy it, is fantastic.”
Richard Johnson, 2018/19 Champion Jump Jockey

 

Oisin Murphy Champ“I don’t look at myself and think of myself as Champion jockey, maybe for a couple of minutes when I collect the trophy. I’d love to be really pleased with the way it’s gone but I’ve just ridden more horses and probably worked harder than anyone else and that’s why I’m Champion jockey. The other plus point is that I haven’t had a suspension at all this year, whereas I had loads last year when I was letting my horse drift or using the whip one time too many.”
Oisin Murphy, 2019 Champion Flat Jockey

 

 

Cieren Fallon“It’s been a surprise as this year was meant to be a quiet season learning the trade and the tracks, and next year we were going to go for the Apprentice title. I’ve got big goals. If you set yourself to just one Championship and one Derby, when you’ve achieved that what do you do next? I must give thanks to Mr Haggas as well as my jockey coaches, Michael Hills and Michael Tebbutt, who have been a great help. My agent Phil Shea has got some nice outside rides for me and it was great to have winners at Glorious Goodwood and in the Old Borough Cup at Haydock.”
Cieren Fallon, 2019 Champion Apprentice Jockey

 

 

James Bowen Champ“I’m extremely overwhelmed. Winning the Welsh Grand National was an unbelievable feeling, but to win Stobart Conditional Jump Jockey tops off what has been a great year for me. I would have been point-to-pointing this time last year. It’s been a great experience and I’ve really enjoyed it. Mr Henderson has been very good to me, and the same with my parents. I’m not making any targets, I’ve just got to keep my head down and keep riding winners.”
James Bowen, 2017/18 Champion Conditional Jockey
