Moore reaches landmark 2,000

The three-time champion jockey rode his 2,000th career winner aboard Billesdon Brook on Wednesday evening

Ryan Moore notched his 2,000th career win at Kempton Park on Wednesday, after he partnered the Richard Hannon-trained Billesdon Brook to success in the Fillies’ Novice Stakes on the card.

Moore’s first ever winner came as a 16-year-old

Ridden prominently, the two-year-old filly powered clear in the final furlong to give Moore an easy six-length victory and a career landmark.

He went on to complete a double on the card after steering Gibbs Hill to a similarly emphatic success.

The win means that Moore joins only a very small handful of riders who have reached the 2,000 mark. Among jockeys still competing, only Frankie Dettori, who has partnered 3,068 winners, and Joe Fanning [2,198] have bagged more.

Regarded as one of the best in the world at his trade, over the last few years he has formed a formidable alliance with Ballydoyle which has seen the partnership bag a plethora of wins at the highest level.

After starting out as an amateur, he tasted his first victory over jumps as a 16-year-old. That came on his father’s Mersey Beat back in May 2000.

The 33-year-old notched his first Classic in the Oaks aboard the Ed Dunlop-trained Snow Fairy in 2010. Workforce gave him a second Classic and first Derby success 24 hours later.
