Our Jockeys

Take a look at our current list of jockeys:

Danny Tudhope

As stable jockey Danny is a very valuable member of our team. He can be seen most mornings riding on the gallops putting the horses through their paces. Unlike many other jockey’s he has the benefit of understanding how to ride the horse before he gets legged up in the parade ring. The horses are familiar with his way of riding and undoubtedly this has gained him a winning advantage on many occasions. Danny has gone from strength to strength since joining David in 2011 and has been on board both G Force and Move In Time in their Group 1 successes this season. He has also won onboard Penitent and Blue Bajan in Group 2 races, as well as heritage handicaps such as Out Do and Pepper Lane in the Great St Wilfred and Doc Hay in the Portland.

Shelley Birkett

3lb Claimer

Shelley is a very experienced 3 lb claimer. A daughter of trainer Julia Feilden, Shelley has a background steeped in racing. 2016 was a fantastic season for Shelley who notched up her highest Total Earnings per season. Her relationship with some of the yards most improved horses such as Firmament and Intisaab showed the confidence in which Shelley can give the horses she rides. Shelley is an invaluable member to team who will hope to build on last seasons impressive stats.

Josh Doyle

3lb Claimer

Josh has now been with David for 4 years and his riding skills continue to improve year on year. Josh currently claims 3lbs and is an incredibly hardworking and committed professional. Josh's efforts have started to pay off and his 25 winners in 2016 highlight his ability to get his rides to run for him. Josh's efforts have not gone unnoticed and he rode a winner in the Godolphin blue at the back end of last season. Josh will aim to beat his season high tally of 25 winners in 2017 while adding some more of the games big owners to those he has worn into the winners enclosure.

Patrick Vaughan

7lb Claimer

Patrick joined David O'Meara Racing in 2016 and rode his first winner for the team on Bond Bombshell. A great addition to the team, Patrick is great value for his 7lbs and has also shown maturity beyond his years when giving Steel Train a cool ride to land a Class 2 handicap at Newcastle late in the year. Paddy will likely shed his 7lbs claimer before long and will build on his encouraging start.
