Story

Andrew will be generously sponsored at Cheltenham by Markel International, the specialist equine bloodstock insurer.

“In another life I would have loved to have been a jump jockey and riding at the Cheltenham Festival, the home of jump racing, is the closest I’m going to get to this dream!  At my age, you need to take the opportunities whilst they’re there and what better charity to do it for than the Injured Jockeys Fund as I have the most enormous respect for jockeys. I’m looking forward to the training for the race, but not to shedding two stone!” 
Thank you for your support!
