Last updated at 15:14, Friday, 18 July 2014
A Workington jockey has pipped others to the post for his first ever 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.”
