Bryan crowned Champion of the Apprentice Hands and Heels Series
24th Oct 2016 | Uncategorized
A BHA jockey coach will attend each one of the Racing Excellence races throughout the series and conduct a pre-race course walk, brief the jockeys on the rules of the race and debrief which includes watching the race after in the steward’s room. The coach on course awards each apprentice points on their professionalism, presentation of themselves, riding skills, place points and they all receive points for taking part in the mandatory course walk.
Joshua ended the series with a 7 point lead so was unable to be caught going in to the final. He won £1000 to put towards his race riding career, previous winners have bought simulators, IPads, racing equipment and fuel cards.
Adam McNamara won the final race of the series, he also won the Racing Excellence Haydock Apprentice Series back in September.
