Danish born Kevin Stott is from a horseracing family, his father is a former jockey who rode in races all around the world, and he then went on to train racehorses. Growing up, Kevin wanted to become a footballer, having a trial at Tottenham when he was 15, but his small frame went against him.
After a discussion with his father, Kevin decided he wanted to become a jockey and headed to the UK to train with racehorse trainer Kevin Ryan.
In June 2020 Kevin won a first Group 1 on board Hello Youmzain at Royal Ascot. Aged just 25 he takes over from Ben Curtis as Nick Bradley Racing retained rider for the 2021 season. We are hugely excited about him riding in the White an Black silks.
Ben is one of the leading jockeys in the UK and is already into treble figures for the third season in a row and is well on target to beat his tally from 2019. He has improved his seasonal numbers every year since he moved permanently from his native Ireland in 2014 – to the extent that last year’s 137 was enough for third place on the jockeys’ list. As more than 50 of those winners came outside the arbitrary parameters of Britain’s official championship (approximately May to October), he was sixth there, a position he intends to improve this time around.

Danny has been one of the best jockeys for a number of years now and has ridden more than 1100 winners in his career. He has a long association with Nick having ridden plenty of big race winners on horses that Nick has purchased over the years.
As well as winning a terrific amount of races Danny has also amassed an incredible £14 million in prize money since starting out in 2003. Last year was his best to date riding 159 winners and finishing a close 2nd in the Jockeys Championship.
