Charlie Deutsch Set For First Ride After Leaving Prison

Today see's the return of the promising 22 year old jockey Charlie Deutsch who is looking to pick up where he left off in his riding career with his first race back at Huntingdon today after Leaving Prison.

The jockey was released from prison in August only on license after he had served two and a half months of an overall 10 month sentence.

Deutsch earlier in the year pleaded guilty to dangerous driving whilst over the drink and drive limit and also escaping police custody.

After now finishing his sentence he will get back into the thick of things and his first stop is today over the jumps in Cambridgeshire where he gets the leg up on Rogue Dancer in the Brampton Handicap Chase who is currently vest priced at 12/1.

(Credit Racing Post) Charlie Deutsch Spoke to the Racing Post about his excitement of returning to the track.

He Said: Deutsch said: "I'm just really looking forward to getting back and I'm really thankful to have a ride tomorrow. I'm looking forward to putting it behind me and looking forward.

"I've missed being in the weighing room, I've missed the routine of riding out and going to the races, and the excitement of trying to win a race."

Before he ended up making a mistake and being sentenced to prison the 22 year old was having his best season to date with 30 winners and was looking to expand that. He also secured his biggest win of his career last season at Haydock on board the Venetia Williams trained Yala Enki in the Grand National Trial.

The jockey added to the Racing Post how he knew he had to keep in tip top shape to be able to take his chance straight away if he was offered rides again.

The jockey said: "I've kept my fitness up, I've been riding out every morning and going to the gym, so I'd like to think I'm ready to go. You don't know how it's going to go until you get back racing. I guess I'll find out tomorrow.

"I just want to be riding on a regular basis if I can and I'd love to beat last year's winners but obviously it's going to be tricky. It might take a bit of time to get to where I want to. I'm very excited and very determined to make the best of it."
