Question Time With Oisin Murphy

Oisin Murphy Question Time

Last year's champion jockey on the flat Oisin Murphy is the first person to sit in the hot seat in our new segment which sees us get all the answers to the questions you want to know about the star rider.

Which race are you most looking forward to this season?

The Derby and The Arc are the races I dream most about from year to year i am just hoping that both can go ahead even if it means they have to be rescheduled.


What newcomer are you looking forward to seeing most?

We haven’t been able to press any buttons with the horses this year, so as of year we are in the dark but we have a fair amount of nice two year olds that could turn some heads this season.

You are a strong favourite for the jockeys title.. are you confident and who do you see as the biggest danger?

I’d love to be champion jockey again but it will be a tough task.

SDS is my main contender having won the title three times before that, he is just a workaholic which is what makes him a top jockey and gentleman.

Up and coming apprentice to look out for?

Sean Davis and Cieren Fallon can both go to the top of the sport and in my eyes will be the riders battling it out for the title, Cieren won it last year and you wouldn't put it past him doing it again.

You can bring one horse you have previously ridden back for one race. Which do you choose & what race?
