Derek Fox

Not many people can say they have ridden the winner of one Grand National, never mind two, but Derek Fox is part of an exclusive band of jockeys to have done just that. Also the rider of two Grade 1 winners, Fox guided One For Arthur to victory on Merseyside in 2017 for the Lucinda Russell yard whom he has enjoyed a successful relationship with for many years.

Fox could barely have believed his luck six years later in 2023 as the well-fancied Corach Rambler – also trained by Lucinda Russell cruised to the front of the race approaching the last to win comfortably. Numerically, Derek enjoyed his best season yet in 2022/23 and is on track to better that once again in 2023/24 with a plethora of strong contenders at the upcoming festivals.
