Good day for ex-amateurs
Congratulations to Sam Twiston-Davies on a fantastic win today in the Paddy Power at Cheltenham. Currently leading conditional jockey aged 18, Sam is reigning runner-up to Oliver Greenall in last season’s NH Amateur Champion Jockey Championship.
Also congratulations to Harry Challoner, Charlie Huxley, Brian Toomey, Peter Toole and Jimmy Derham who also won today across the UK. What a great day for those who chose the amateur ranks to gain experience before turning professional.
