Seb Sanders

Jockey Profile

Seb Sanders
Seb Sanders is a flat racing jockey and was born in Birmingham, England on September 25, 1971.

Sanders started his racing career with Bryan McMahon (who retired in 2006), and rode his first winner for McMahon in 1990 on Band On The Run. He was named Champion Apprentice in 1995 and won his first Group 1 race in 1997. It was this win, on the 50-1 outsider, Crompton Place in the July Cup at Newmarket that increased his profile.

He stepped up as first jockey to Sir Mark Prescott when George Duffield left in 2004. Sanders wrote Confidential Lady to a huge victory in the French Oaks in 2006 which gave Prescott his first Classic win. Sanders was banned after this race for excessive use of the whip. The banning was for 8 days which led him to miss the whole Royal Ascot meeting.
Seb Sanders
Champion jockey, Kieren Fallon singled out Sanders as his main rival in the 2002 flat racing season. Sanders ended that season with 123 wins.

Sanders shared the title of British flat racing Champion Jockey in 2007 with Jamie Spencer. On the last day of the exciting season at Doncaster, Spencer managed to win the last race of the season, bringing their totals to a draw, each on 190.

Sanders is presently one of the most successful flat racing jockeys in Britain. He has ridden over 100 winners each season for the past 5 seasons.
