Racing Excellence

Racing Excellence is a series of races for Apprentice and Conditional Jockeys which are supported by a qualified Jockey Coach and run under the Hands and Heels or Training Race conditions.

About the Series

It has been long recognised that inexperienced jockeys benefit from structured coaching when race riding to improve and develop their skills. With 74 races across 7 series, including both flat and jumps codes and All Weather, the Racing Excellence series provides this valuable opportunity.  Jockey coaches attend each of these races and provide expert tuition in race riding, tactics, fitness, professionalism and conduct. Points are awarded to jockeys for winning or being placed as well as for jockey skills, professionalism and conduct. The jockey with the most points wins the respective series.
