A Mentoring Session with Rachel King
Big thank you to Champion jockey Rachel King for her recent mentoring session with our Accelerator’s. What an inspiring story, from jumps racing in England, to a two month trip to Australia which resulted in 12 months of riding track work for Gai Waterhouse Racing, followed by a jockey apprenticeship, and now she sits at the top of the Australian jockey ranks.
Like our previous mentors, Rachel is incredibly humble and is a horse person through and through, with the love of horses the common ground. She reflected on her 12 month’s riding trackwork as one of the periods in her life where she learnt the most. She also spoke to our riders about the importance of how to give vital feedback on how a racehorse feels to their trainer.
