Ryan Moore Jockey

Horse racing is in the Moore family’s blood, so it was no surprise when Ryan eventually followed his father, former jump jockey and trainer Gary, and grandfather Charlie, a well-known Flat-racing trainer, into the sport after dabbling with football.

However, it is not over the jumps that Ryan has excelled but on the Flat, being crowned Champion Jockey three times – in 2006, 2008 and 2009 – as well as notching a host of major victories in the UK and abroad, including many Classics.

Moore, born in Sussex on September 18, 1983, did not take long to make his mark once he decided that football at Brighton wasn’t for him, chalking up victories from as young as 16 and for his grandfather before he died in 2000.

But it was in 2003 that Moore really came to the fore when he was named British Flat Racing's Champion Apprentice and the Apprentice Jockey of the Year, having clocked his first big win the year before in the Cesarewitch Handicap at Newmarket.

The Englishman emphasised his promise in 2004, when he chalked up 100 winners – including his maiden Group 2 and 3 successes (respectively the Mill Reef Stakes and the Prestige Stakes) – and pocketed £1million in prize money for the first time, and he has achieved a stream of victories since then.

They have numbered four Breeders’ Cup Turf triumphs and three 1000 Guineas wins, plus doubles in the Epsom Derby and Oaks, the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, the St Leger Stakes and the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes. He has also won the Japan Cup and the Melbourne Cup once each.

Many of these victories have come in partnership with Ballydoyle master trainer Aidan O’Brien, who has used Moore as his retained rider since 2015.

Ryan Moore Career Highlights

Sir Michael Stoute-trained Moore’s first Group 1 winner, Notnowcato, in the Juddmonte International at York in 2006, helped Moore to his first Champion Jockey title that year.

After an injury-hit 2007, Moore was Champion Jockey and Flat Jockey of the Year in 2008, when he also claimed his first Breeders’ Cup Turf win on Conduit.

The Moore-Conduit partnership was even more successful in 2009, bringing the Englishman a second Breeders’ Cup Turf title and his first King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes triumph, which helped him to another awards double of Champion Jockey and Flat Jockey of the Year.

2010 was an epic year for Moore, with maiden Derby and Oaks victories on successive days at Epsom on Workforce and Snow Fairy respectively, along with his first Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe triumph, also on Workforce.

In 2011 Moore started riding more frequently for Aidan O’Brien, although it took two years for this partnership to really bear fruit in the shape of the Epsom Derby on Ruler Of The World, the Japan Cup on Gentildonna and the Breeders’ Cup Turf on Magician.

The Melbourne Cup on Protectionist followed in 2014, but it was in 2015 and 2016 that Moore really dominated the big races.

2015 produced 1000 Guineas (on Legatissimo), 2000 Guineas (on Gleneagles) and Breeders’ Cup Turf (on Found) successes, while 2016 brought victories in the 1000 Guineas and the Epsom Oaks on Minding, the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes (on Highland Reel) and the Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe (also on Found).

Ryan Moore Significant Horses

Conduit was a star horse for Ryan Moore in the early part of his career, helping him to five wins, including the Breeders’ Cup Turf in 2008 and 2009, as well as the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes in 2009.

Moore then enjoyed global success on Snow Fairy in 2010, winning the Queen Elizabeth II Commemorative Cup in Japan, the Hong Kong Cup, the Irish Oaks and the Epsom Oaks, before repeating his Queen Elizabeth II Commemorative Cup success on the horse the following year.

However, his most fruitful partnership so far has probably been with Minding, whom he piloted to victory in the 2015 Fillies’ Mile at Newmarket, before embarking on an outstanding run in 2016 which brought him wins in the 1000 Guineas, the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes, the Nassau Stakes, the Epsom Oaks and the Pretty Polly Stakes.

Around the same period Moore established a superb relationship with Maurice in the Far East, where he rode the Japanese thoroughbred to first place in the 2015 Hong Kong Mile and the Mile Championship, followed by the 2016 Tenno Sho and the Hong Kong Cup.

Irish thoroughbred Gleneagles also proved a winning horse for Moore in 2015, as he completed the English-Irish 2000 Guineas double on him, along with the St James’s Palace Stakes.

Ryan Moore Key Rides

This year Ryan Moore has a 100% record at the time of writing on Circus Maximus, whom he has led home in the Dee Stakes and St James’s Palace Stakes, and he could cash in further on the Irish thoroughbred in 2019.

He currently has entries in the Juddmonte International Stakes at York and the QIPCO Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown.

Aidan O’Brien has also entered two other horses in those two Group 1 races on which Moore has had success this season, namely Magical and Hermosa.

The Englishman has won all three of his races in Ireland on Magical, including the Tattersalls Gold Cup, and his sole run on Hermosa in Ireland in the Irish 1,000 Guineas.

The Irish trainer therefore looks to have a tricky decision at York and Leopardstown – as he does in the Qatar Nassau Stakes at Goodwood and the Coolmore Fastnet Rock Matron Stakes at Leopardstown, where Magical and Hermosa are both entered.
