Club Manager

Freddy Tylicki

RacehorseClub are delighted to welcome Sky Sports Racing’s Freddy Tylicki as part of the management team.

Champion Apprentice in 2009, Freddy was a top class jockey, winning over 400 races including two Group 1s, before his first career came to an abrupt and premature end at the age of 30 at Kempton Park in October 2016 when his mount, Nellie Dean, was involved in a four-horse pile-up.

Freddy suffered severe spinal injuries which have left him paralysed from the waist down and confined to a wheelchair. He has since shown incredible resilience and positivity to carve himself out a second career as a broadcaster, becoming a regular pundit on Sky.

Freddy is the son of the three-time German Champion Jockey Andrzej Tylicki, but he moved at the age of 15 from Germany to Ireland, where he began his professional life working for top trainers Dermot Weld and Jim Bolger, before emigrating again in 2008 to England, where he rapidly established a highly successful partnership with the Yorkshire-based handler, Richard Fahey.

He later relocated to Newmarket to become stable jockey to James Fanshawe, and it was for Fanshawe that he enjoyed his two top level victories, both aboard the Shamardal filly, Speedy Boarding.

What Tylicki says about RacehorseClub:

“I’m absolutely delighted to be joining RacehorseClub and feel honoured to have been given this great opportunity. I am wholly behind the club’s ambitions and truly believe that it is going to be a great success.

“RacehorseClub gives anyone and everyone the chance of owning an affordable club share of a top-class racehorse in the UK and Ireland at the highest level with the assurance of enjoyment and great fun along the way.

“I’m really looking forward to getting started and meeting members to share my enthusiasm and knowledge.”
