Jockey of the Month – January 2017
PUBLISHED: 13 February 2017
KEAGAN DE MELO
There is no doubt that Anthony Delpech is riding at the top of his game and has to be credited for his excellent performance during the month where he bagged nine winners from 27 rides.
Opportunity to ride the better horses is a key factor for racing success and Keagan has gained that since joining the top Ashburton stable of Duncan Howells which finished a close second on the monthly trainer list for the month.
Keagan has always shown his ability in the saddle and has grabbed every opportunity with both hands which this month saw him riding eight winners from 52 mounts and steering another 13 into the placings.
With many top riders out there it is a tough challenge and Keagan deserves this monthly award for taking it up and producing the goods.
Well done Keagan
