As at October 2019

From cowboy to jockey!

Brady joined us at Bonita Racing Stables last season, and has just returned after spending the summer in his homeland – Alberta, Canada ahead of the 2019/20 jumps season.

From a background of farming, Brady originally rode western and in rodeos – check out the photo! However, after spending some time at the Racing School in Canada and subsequently in Ireland, he decided that he wished to follow a career in racing.

Brady’s favourite horse in the yard is Viva Vittoria (pictured below) as he rides her regularly and says; ‘I love her attitude, and riding her and her owners are lovely people’. Viva Vittoria, is possibly extra special to Brady as the first time he visited a British racecourse was to lead up Viva when she duly won at Market Rasen – stamping the day as the best in Brady’s racing career – so far!
