Tom Marquand lands first Group win

Pony Racing Graduate Tom Marquand lands first Group win

3 years after graduating from pony racing Tom Marquand continues to hit the headlines. He was Champion Apprentice in his first year of racing, rode out his claim within the first couple of years and has now landed his first Group 1 winner for his boss Richard Hannon on Anna Nerium at Salisbury racecourse.

Hollie Doyle, who also works for Richard Hannon and started in pony racing, also rode her first Group 1 winner earlier this season.

Both Tom and Hollie work hard and have always shown determination and grit to get to the top. Even when they were pony racing – and even when they weren’t always in the winners enclosure – it was obvious to all those watching that they had the work ethic and talent to get to the top.

Pony racing is where it all started for Tom and Hollie. To see the up and coming jockeys of the future come to the Charles Owen finals at Newmarket on Future Champions Day – 14th October 2017.
