Who is jockey Jack Andrews?
Jack Andrews is a 24-year-old who hails from Warwick, had lofty ambitions growing up, dreaming like most people of being a champion jockey. The rapid growth of Jack’s career took place between the age of 17 and 18 and left him thinking a career in the saddle might be just a tall tale. Fast forward six years and then the amateur jockey has ridden a £13,000 win at Cheltenham in the shape of Anightinlambourn. His success was followed up last weekend with Xcitations, a Class 2 winner prize worth £16,000 on the Sandown’s star-studded Tolworth Hurdle card.
Incredibly, despite towering over all of his weighing room colleagues with his height at 6 feet 4 inches, Jack can still get down light enough to ride at 10st 2lbs.
Every pound of Jack’s body weight helps him out on the field. Apart from his height and build, he is also known as a man who knows how to handle a horse in a good manner.
Who is a Jockey?
A jockey is a person who rides horses in horse racing or steeplechase racing, basically as his profession. The word also applies to the rider of a camel in camel racing. The word “jockey” originated in England and was used for describing an individual who rode horses in racing. They must be light, typically around a weight of 100-120 lb. as well as physically fit. They are typically self-employed and also paid a small fee from the horse trainer and a percentage of the horse’s winnings.
Jockeys are mostly male, though there are well-known female jockeys too who are doing their job at a very high risk of debilitating or life-threatening injuries. Jockeys should be light to ride at weights that are assigned to their mounts.
