Stevie Donohoe, Flat Jockey

Age: 35
Based: Newmarket
Riding Career: Started out in 2003 and has had c. 700 winners to date.  He rides primarily for Charlie Fellowes and his biggest winner came aboard Rajasinghe in the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot.

As one of the senior members of the weighing room, Stevie averages around 50,000 miles a year, often riding at two race meetings in one day during the summer.  He says the constant pressure of getting to the races is extremely draining and has tried to alter his mindset as he’s got older and has plenty of advice for younger jockeys who are just starting out today.
