We have been fortunate enough to have Simon working for us since 2014. He is a credit to the team with his knowledge behind him and obviously his riding ability. Simon has ridden over 900 winners over the years and has claimed the title of Champion Amateur several times. He is one of our work riders and comes in every morning.
