Equinox Racing is delighted to be sponsoring top National Hunt jockey, William Kennedy. Will is having another great season and is a proven winner, and we look forward to the club working closely with Will going forwards.
Originally from Co. Kildare in Ireland, professional jump jockey William Kennedy grew up immersed in horses and racing – his late father Vivian was a jockey and later a trainer, while his mother Kathleen makes racing silks. Will has lived in England for over 10 years, having first come over to work for top trainer Noel Chance. In his second season with Noel, Will took out his conditional jockey’s licence, and he was champion conditional in 2006.
Since then Will’s career has gone from strength to strength and Will currently has most of his rides with Donald McCain Jnr, and is on track for another fantastic season after notching 63 winners during 2016/2017. His best win to date was on Ebony Express at the William Hill Imperial Cup Handicap Hurdle (Grade 3) in March 2015.
Hopefully there will be some more big winners to come on board some of our club horses!
