Jamie Spencer

Jockey Profile

Jamie Spencer
Jamie Spencer was born on the 8th of June 1980 in County Tipperary in Ireland. He is currently one of the top jockeys in Britain and Ireland.

He is the godson of John Magnier who owns Coolmore Stud and his father George was the trainer of Winning Fair who was Champion Hurdler in 1963. He is married to the daughter of retired trainer, Lynda Ramsden.

Spencer became Liam Browne's apprentice jockey in 1996 and won his first race in May of that year at Downpatrick. Spencer only 17 when he won on Tommy Stack's Tarascon in the 1998 Irish 1,000 Guineas and the following year he was Irish champion apprentice. He moved to England in 2000 and became partners with trainer Luca Cumani. Whilst he was with that stable he had wins in the Fillies Mile and Irish 1000 Guineas on Gossamer and the Singapore International Cup on Endless Hall.
Anton Marcus
He moved back to Ireland in 2004 in what proved to be an unwise decision. During his time with Aidan O'Brien at Ballydoyle he rode Valoren and Oratorio to victory, but received a lot of criticism for his manner of riding and in 2005 he left the stable for "personal reasons". He went back to England as a freelance jockey and has proved hugely successful.

Jamie Spencer shared the title of British champion Jockey with Seb Saunders in 2007.
