Finian O’Toole, Conditional Jockey
Back in the Spring of 2015, 23-year-old Fin from Loughrea joined Micky Hammond Racing as a conditional, after previously working for Charlie Swan in Ireland. He’s a natural at riding over fences, and spends plenty of time in the gym and going for evening runs. He gave Alderbrook Lad a really lovely ride to land his first winner under Rules, in a £12,500 handicap chase at Cartmel in June, judging the pace perfectly from the front. Fin has made a great impression, riding 17 winners in his first season!
