The Cod­mas­ter lands big catch in Ire­land

The Racing Paper - - Trends And Diary -

JAMIE Codd reached a no­table land­mark ear­lier this month by rid­ing his 900th point-to-point win­ner on Pe­gasi Amour at the Loughan­more meet­ing.

It is an as­ton­ish­ing fig­ure when you con­sider that few pro­fes­sional jump jock­eys in Ire­land have achieved so much suc­cess.

The Cod­dmas­ter has long been the go-to rider in all the ma­jor ama­teur races on both sides of the Ir­ish Sea. He has had six win­ners at the Chel­tenham Fes­ti­val and was sec­ond on Cause of Causes in last year’s Grand Na­tional.

The most suc­cess­ful points jockey in Bri­tain is Richard Bur­ton who re­tired in 2011 with 414 wins.
