IT’S A FIRST: Jockey Ryan Day has had his first win

Ryan Day, 20, of Camerton, won a three-mile handicap hurdle at Perth earlier this month.

He was riding Solway Sam trained by Lisa Harrison, of Aldoth, near Silloth.

The former Cockermouth School student became a professional jockey six weeks ago. He trained at the British Racing School in Newmarket, Suffolk.

Ryan said: “I’m the first person in my family to become a professional jockey.

“I first got on a horse at a very young age and fell in love with the sport.

“It was a brilliant feeling to get my first win. It didn’t really sink in until people came over and congratulated me.

“My aim is to become a top jockey in the future.”

Have your say

well done Ryan, you deserve it!! keep it up
