Colin Tizzard To Pass Over Training License To Son Joe At The End Of The Season

Colin Tizzard

Leading British jumps trainer Colin Tizzard will be calling time on his career at the end of the 2021 jumps season and passing on his training license to his son and assistant trainer Joe Tizzard after he completes his training modules.

The Dorset handler has had an illustrious career landing the majority of the big races across the UK like the King George, Betfair Chase and the Cheltenham Gold Cup.

Throughout his career the handler has trained some of the greatest jumps horses we have ever seen in the sport, with the animals like Cue Card, Thistlecrack and Native River be horses of a lifetime.

Tizzard now believes this year is the right time to step down and pass the reigns over to his son, who has been working alongside his father for sometime now.

The handler has expressed it will be towards the autumn time when he will officially step down, with him now looking for a big send off with some winners at the Spring Cheltenham and Aintree festivals.

It was thought that before he did retire, that the father and son duo would share a joint license but the 65 year old is now happy to let his son have a fair crack at things on his own.

(Credit Racing Post) Tizzard said: "I don't fancy Colin and Joe. I'm 65 and it won't change anything. I'll still argue with him every morning.

"He deserves a go and you don't want to leave it too late in life. He's been doing a bloody good job."

He added: "It was always going to be when I was 65. There are other things I wouldn't mind doing and I don't want to wake up every morning worrying about horses all the time.

"I might want to take my wife Pauline away to New Zealand and places like that, which we've never done - we've been looking after horses for the past 25 years!

"It'll change as soon as Joe has done his modules. He should have done them in the summer, but there's nothing to sort out; it's just changing my name for his, so things won't change one iota.

"Joe's been doing more and more and I'm there with him - on the gallops every morning for two hours - but he deserves his name at the top. Me and Pauline can go travelling; training isn't an easy game as you have to deal with expectations and disappointments."
