  “Many thanks to all the FYC players who took part in the Jockey Jan Bonspiel this week (in memory of Jan Wilson an aspiring horse racing jockey and junior curler). A huge thank you to Margaret and Drew Wilson for their continuing support of Forfar Young Curlers and their donation from the Jockey Jan Memorial Fund of £1000 that will allow FYC to continue to support and develop junior curling in the Forfar area.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There were 6 teams full of FYC talent playing today. Some great curling was on show, and 6 very well balanced teams (well done organisers). This was a great opportunity for some of our younger players to play competitively, and everyone seemed to be enjoying the day. At the end of the Schenkel tournament (Winning teams play winning teams, and same team is never played twice). Euan MacDiarmid's team came out on top, with Jodie Duff (3rd), Mark Ogg (2nd) and 8 year old Inca Maguire (Lead), beating Craig Joiner (skip), Fraser Smith (3rd), Adam MacDiramid (2nd) and Sarah Allison (Lead) into 2nd place. Hailey Duff (Skip), Ewan Maguire (3rd), Rachel Flint (2nd) and Daniel Burnett (Lead) were the 3rd placed team. Well done everybody.”

BUT JOCKEY AMY RYAN MAKES HISTORY.

Jockey Amy Ryan targets future success after year to remember
By Elizabeth Hudson
 BBC Sport Newly-crowned apprentice champion Amy Ryan believes it is just a matter of time before a female jockey wins a British Flat racing Classic.

Ryan created her own piece of history on Saturday when she became the first woman to win the apprentice title outright.

The 23-year-old from Hambleton, near Thirsk in Yorkshire, finished her season with 40 winners, two clear of closest rival Darren Egan.

She was presented with the trophy by Britain's leading female jockey Hayley Turner who tied for the apprentice title in 2005 and has gone on to blaze a trail.

"A female Classic winner is certainly not out of the question," Ryan told BBC Sport. "More people are getting used to the idea and Hayley has had some rides already in the Classics.

"It is all about getting on the right horse at the right time and having a trainer or owner with the faith to keep you on the horse when it wins.

"To win the apprentice title is huge and hopefully it will break down some more barriers for female jockeys. Things are changing, there are more girls coming through who are seeing horse racing as a career and maybe what we have achieved will give them an incentive.

"It's good we can have a bit of a laugh and banter in the weighing room and you aren't just there on your own."

Ryan's pre-season aim was to pass 95 career winners, after which her mounts would no longer be granted a weight allowance.

Amy Ryan factfile
•Age: 23
•Lives: Hambleton, Yorkshire
•Turned professional: 2009
•2012 highlight: Winning on Laffan , trained by her father Kevin, on Oaks day at Epsom
•Former apprentice championship winners include Lester Piggott (1950/51), Frankie Dettori (1989), Paul Hanagan (2002), Ryan Moore (2003) and Tom Queally (2004)

But the daughter of trainer Kevin enjoyed a dream campaign, achieving that mark in May and from then on concentrated on winning the apprentice crown but she missed out on the inaugural female jockeys championship, which was won by Turner.

"After I lost my claim I panicked a bit and thought I would struggle for rides but I was on a roll at the time and I had a lot of help from my dad and other trainers in the north like Richard Whitaker," she admitted.

"I knew this would be my last year to win the apprentice title so it was in the back of my mind but there are a lot of good apprentices riding and I didn't think about it until towards the end of the season when I thought I would have a chance.

But when Darren got banned towards the end of the season and I caught up with him and then I thought I would give it a real shot.

"Although there was a bit of pressure and lot of media attention, I enjoyed it more than anything and didn't really feel the pressure."

Ryan has ridden at 26 UK racecourses this year but she says has not thought about how many miles she has clocked up in pursuit of her dream.

"The other week I rode at Wolverhampton five days out of seven, and that is two and a half hour journey each way, but it shows the miles you have to do. Then another day I rode at Lingfield, which is nearly five hours away from home," she explained.

"You take what you can when you are going for the championship. For example, the other Saturday I had eight rides - two at Catterick and then the rest at Wolverhampton.

"It can be very tiring, which a lot of people don't appreciate - they just see the glamour of racing at the course. When you are getting in from Wolverhampton at half 12 or one in the morning and you are back up again at 6 o'clock in the morning to start work again it is tough."

Next up for Ryan is a well-deserved holiday to Tenerife before she returns for some rides on the all-weather over the winter months ahead of the new campaign which starts in March, but she is hoping that the apprentice title can be the springboard to further success in the sport.

"Not many people can say they love their job and get paid to do something they love but I am lucky to be in that position so as long as I can keep make a living out of it I will keep enjoying it," she said.

"I'm under no illusions, I know a lot of people have won the apprentice's title and struggled after that. I just want to keep working hard and retain my contacts and on the all-weather."
