Cieren Fallon Rides First Winner With Dad Watching On

Cieren JNR and Kieren Fallon SNR

Yesterday evening history was made at Leicester in the final race of the day when 19 year old Cieren Fallon JNR, son of the six time Champion Flat Jockey Kieren Fallon SNR, rode his first winner in style on the 25/1 outsider Plucky Dip for trainer John Ryan.

The Teenagers father was at the racecourse in Leicestershire on Monday to watch his son win on baord the seven year old by half a length to Peachey Carnehan trained by Michael Mullineaux.

The apprentice who is currently settled in with leading flat trainer William Haggas at Newmarket was only on board his third ever professional ride and was overjoyed to get off the mark in the "Hands And Heels" Apprentice Series Handicap.

Fallon JNR is looking to replicate or even get close to what his father produced as a jockey being champion jockey six times and winning 2253 professional races including just under 100 Group 1 races across nine different countries.

He at one point was the greatest jockey on the planet and his son is on the right path to go and follow in his footsteps with such a proud moment for the Fallon family.

Before his win yesterday Cieren had finished runner up in both his other rides to date making an unbelievable start to his career and is a jockey to keep an eye on for the future with more trainers sure to be offering him rides around racecourses in Great Britain and Ireland.
