British Champion Flat Jockey
RacehorseClub ambassador Oisin Murphy won the title in both 2019 and 2020. He is the heir apparent to his friend, idol and rival, Frankie Dettori, in the role of the nation’s favourite jockey.
A natural in front of a camera or microphone, he has embraced the use of social media as a way of promoting the sport that he loves. He is a brilliant communicator, a skill which enables him to give expert feedback to owners immediately after every single ride, something that he can achieve in four different languages.
Born in Ireland, he has lived in Britain since 2012 and, based at trainer Andrew Balding’s famed jockey academy in Berkshire, he became Champion Apprentice Jockey in 2014.
Two years later he was signed up to ride for leading owners Qatar Racing and this partnership has blossomed ever since, most notably in June 2020 when Oisin landed his first Classic aboard Kameko in the QIPCO 2000 Guineas.
He also achieved three Group 1 victories in Qatar Racing’s ‘claret with gold braid’ silks aboard Roaring Lion in 2018, while his reputation as a global superstar of the saddle was underlined in 2019 when he won the Nassau Stakes on the Japanese mare, Deirdre, then ventured to the Far East to land the Japan Cup on Suave Richard.
What Oisin says about RacehorseClub:
"RacehorseClub is a unique opportunity to be involved in a world class horse."
"Every owner's dream is to be involved on the big days: Royal Ascot, Glorious Goodwood, the Cheltenham Festival, the list goes on. This is your chance."
"There are no hidden costs. I look forward with huge excitement to partnering some of the club's horses."
