Seated here front right holding his 2019 ARO Champion Jockey’s trophy is our AGMA sponsored jockey 24yr old Alex Chadwick.
Alex, now an integral part of the James Owen Racing team joined the Newmarket-based stable earlier this year. Prior to this he had a brief spell as a conditional jockey in Scotland, returning to the amateur ranks and initially riding point-to-pointers for Owen before commencing his first season on Arabians. What a truly remarkable achievement to become Champion Jockey in his first season riding under ARO rules ! Alex’s aim over the winter will be “to ride in point-to-points and under rules when I can, and hopefully getting more winners.”
Our congratulations also to James Owen on his 2019, third ARO Trainers’ championship and the success of the James Owen Racing Club.
Well done Alex. Read more about ARO Championship winners.
