Leading rider for Godolphin William Buick is very eager to get the season started and is over the moon that racing could return to Britain as soon as next week.
The Norwegian born rider has some huge upcoming rides for the season, no bigger than the superstar Pinatubo who is a very short favourite for the 2000 Guineas and is currently unbeaten on all six of his starts.
Buick has been keeping busy in this off period from racing and has now expressed he is ready for all the big events and is looking forward to superb meetings taking place so close to each other.
(Credit At The Races) “I’ve been keeping fit as I would normally, riding out most days and I’ve got a gym set up at home. That’s been good for keeping fit, so that’s something I’m not really worried about.
“I am looking forward to getting back to the daily routine.”
The rider has expressed that it will be challenging to adhere to the new guidelines with not being used to doing that whilst racing Strict social distancing and hygiene measures will be employed for jockeys.
However, Godolphin's number one rider expects all his fellow jockeys to follow the rules and the meetings to go off without a hitch, all being well.
He added: “I think everyone is very positive and very realistic towards it – I think you just all have to stick together, show solidarity and respect the guidelines that have been set.
“They’re so important at the moment and probably will be for a while, but if that’s what it takes to get racing back, we will all adhere to that.”
