Luke Morris Lands 100th Winner For Tenth Straight Year

Luke Morris

Leading rider Luke Morris achieved a landmark that only flat jockeys in Britain can dream of by landing 100 British winners for the tenth year in a row, when winning on the Ruth Carr trained Athmad on Saturday.

The 32 year old rider has been at the top of his game for a long time in the sport now and believes that his will to keep on winning is what gives him the edge on some of his colleagues in the weighing room.

The Englishman rode his first winner back in 2005 and Morris was quick to pay tribute to his agent Neil Allan, who has stuck by him since the start of his career.

(Credit Racing Post) "I'm lucky to have a very hard-working agent and lots of people supporting me," said Morris.

"Each year I set myself the target of riding 100 winners, but obviously Covid has made it extremely tricky this year and I'm delighted to be able to do it for the tenth consecutive year.

"I'm also quite fortunate as I have a full-time driver, which makes my life a lot easier, and I don't have any weight issues."

The rider is one of the most hard working jockeys in the sport regularly exceeded 1,500 domestic rides in a calendar year, which has seen him travel up and down the country for a number of year now, riding winners at nearly every track in Britain.

His personal-best total of 189 winners in 2014 and 2015 has been tough to beat as if yet and although it is a huge target that he has set himself, he aspires to go close next term.

"I'm a very competitive person who enjoys riding winners and when I ride a winner I can't wait to ride the next one," he said.

"It's such a competitive industry and I'm as hungry now as when I first started."

Morris seems to do his best work on the all weather and sine the inauguration of the all weather champs in 2013 he has become the champion rider on three separate occasions and believes he can have another strong winter.

He added: "I've had quite a busy year and I'll take a short break at some stage, but I'll be working hard to drive in as many winners as I can and build up a good contact base for the start of the turf season."
