  • Silvestre de Sousa
    Age: 37
    One of 10 children, Brazilian ace Silvestre de Sousa first sat on a horse at age 18 and within two years he was champion apprentice in Sao Paulo. He moved to Europe at age 22 and was employed as a work rider for Dermot Weld. In 2004, dispirited after two years without a ride in public, De Sousa moved to England and teamed up with North Yorkshire trainer Dandy Nicholls. His first UK win was achieved aboard Sonic Anthem at Southwell on 1 January, 2006. Riding mainly for lesser trainers, often on longshots, he established his reputation on the northern circuit and in 2010 he rode his first century. With trainer Mark Johnston's support he finished runner-up in the 2011 UK champion jockey race. He was retained by Godolphin from 2012 to 2014, during which time his haul included the G1 Dubai World Cup on African Story. Riding freelance in 2015, he achieved 132 wins to claim the UK champion jockey title and repeated in 2017 with 155 wins. De Sousa has notched an admirable 16 winners in each of his two short winter stints in Hong Kong (2015/16 and 2016/17).
    Notable honours include:
    UK Champion Jockey (2015 & 2017).
    IJC record:
    2015 - 4th.
