Alan Munro on Copenhagen Racecourse

Since Jacob Johansens has been grounded for 6 weeks after a unfortunate incident in Sweden several weeks ago now, trainer Bent Olsen is without his first jockey for 6 weeks, and had to find a replacement, not the least for Sunday, where “big battles are going to be fought”. He chose Alan Munro, and from what I’ve found, he made a good choice. He has ridden all over the world and has won buckets full of races and of course The Derby as well.

There is much more about Alan Munro – who will be 40 this year – on the following links:

Alan Munro på Jockey’s Room.com – here you can see all the races he has participated in and where. That’s a lot.

Alan Munro på Wikepedia - A somewhat more accessable view over his most important wins.

Sunday he is riding the following horses:

Skandinavisk Opdrætningsløb

Reventon

Copenhagen Golden Mile

Kronhjort

Scandinavian Open Championchip

Dan Tucket

Very exciting to see this jockey “in action”. Another of many thrills for the racing day Sunday.

I hope Alan will enjoy his rides on Klampenborg Racecourse!

  1. Hej Deborah
    Du skriver at Jacob Johansen har karantæne.
    Ved du hvorfor? Anledning??
    Synes aldrig de skriver dén slags på Raceweb, hvilket er ret irriterende.
    Mvh

  2. Karen – Nej det gør de ikke, hvilket jeg også synes, de godt kunne, eller der burde være et sted, hvor vi kunne gå ind og se det om ikke andet. Raceweb er ejet af Filip Zwicky, som også er ansat på banen, men det er faktisk ikke galopbanens site. Det er kun galopbane.dk, hvor det så burde stå! Det gør det ikke, men jeg kan fortælle dig, at hvis ikke alle 6 uger, så nogen af dem skyldes, at han til Voterlöbning på Jägersro, generede flere heste – deriblandt vores hest, så meget at det var et mirakel ingen kom alvorligt til skade. Dengang hed det sig 14 dage, og derfor ved jeg ikke, om de har skærpet straffen el. der er andre episoder oveni.

    Hyggeligt du skrev, gør endelig igen.

    Mange hilsener

    Deborah
