Jacob Johansen on Kronhjort, who has Alan Munro riding him Sunday after Jacob has been put on the ground for 6 weeks
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:
Copenhagen Golden Mile
Scandinavian Open Championchip
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!
