Sheffield born Joe is our senior jockey and has been with us since 2008, having briefly worked for Ian Williams after completing his NRC course.
He rode his first winner in January 2011 aboard San Deng in a handicap hurdle at Catterick and went on to ride 25 winners in his first four seasons, including his first chase success on Alderbrook Lad, also at Catterick, on New Year's Day in 2014.
Joe is now a very successful full jockey, having put a turbulent few years behind him, he has come back bigger and better. Joe has worked hard to get himself back in the lime light for all the right reasons! He has forged himself a strong relationship with Jedd O’Keeffe, former assistant Trainer at Oakwood Stables, having the pleasure of ride some high profile horses including grade one winner Sam Spinner.
“I've learnt my trade from a former top class jockey and a brilliant trainer," says Joe. “I fully appreciate all the support, and criticism, that I get from the boss and I'm extremely grateful to all the owners for their continued support.”
"We have a great team here and I enjoy the laughs and banter that goes on, no matter how good or bad things are."
