Every racing fan is aware of the highs and lows that come with the sport and if you think being a fan was tough, imagine what the jockeys themselves are put through on a daily basis!
In this two part series, we follow Cheltenham Festival and Royal Ascot winner, Dougie Costello, as he takes us through a weekend in the life of a professional jockey…
Day One – Follow Dougie as he rides out in the morning before making the trip to Chester for a couple of evening rides.
Day Two – Dougie rides out in the morning before heading down to Newcastle and onwards to Doncaster.
Gold Cup or Grand National?
