Welcome back Will
Congratulations to Will Biddick on a winning return to the amateur ranks at Exeter today where he won the opener, the amateur riders novice hurdle, for Paul Nicholls on Garton King.
This is a timely reminder to all amateur jockeys considering turning professional that 25 is the number to remember!!
The current Rules of Racing state that conditionals/apprentices cannot revert back to amateur status if:
- more than 25 wins achieved as a professional
- aged 26 or over (being classified as a full professional jockey on 26th birthday regardless of number of wins and/or rides (if any))
