Adrian Heskin joins 32Red Ambassadors’ Stable
Heskin joins de Boinville, Cooper and Brennan at 32Red to bolster the jump season team
32Red are delighted to announce Adrian Heskin as their newest brand ambassador, as he joins their stable of the finest British and Irish jockeys.
Heskin adds to the already stellar cast of National Hunt jockeys at 32Red, where he will be providing weekly content throughout the Jump Season alongside stablemates Bryan Cooper, Paddy Brennan and Nico de Boinville. The 32Red Ambassador team also includes an unrivalled line-up of Flat jockeys with Jamie Spencer, Josephine Gordon and Luke Morris currently providing regular insight on their major rides at the 32Red Blog.
As first jockey for Tom George’s stable, Adrian Heskin is sure to add to his impressive tally of over 200 winners during the coming season. At the age of 25, his mix of undoubted talent, experience and ambition should blend together perfectly to help establish the Cork-native as one of the top jockeys active today.
Heskin shot to prominence in 2010, when at the age of just 17, he won The Cross-Country Chase on A New Story in his first ever Cheltenham ride. Further Festival success has followed for Heskin in recent years, in 2015 as he claimed the Grade 1 Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle on Martello Tower and he will no doubt be eager to continue that success and join colleagues Brennan, Cooper and de Boinville as a Gold Cup winner in the coming seasons.
Heskin commented: “I’m delighted to be starting my partnership with 32Red. I’m looking forward to much success together this season, starting this weekend at Perth.”
Matt Booth, Chief Commercial Officer, 32Red PLC, added: “32Red are delighted to have Adrian added to our stable of brand ambassadors.
“Adrian is clearly one of the most talented jockeys active today and through his association with Tom George, he’ll be in a very strong position to deliver plenty of winners in the 32Red breeches.
“Alongside Nico, Paddy, Bryan and our Flat Season jockeys too, it really does leave 32Red as the go-to destination for fans of the best in racing.”
Adrian Heskin announced himself as a future star of National Hunt racing in 2010 when, in his first ever Cheltenham Festival ride, he claimed victory on board A New Story in The Cross-Country Chase.
Success consistently followed for the talented Heskin and at the start of the 2017-18 season, the 25-year-old had already amassed over 200 winners in Great Britain and Ireland.
Notable victories for Heskin have included the Bet365 Gold Cup at Sandown on Church Island, aged just 17 and a further high at Cheltenham when claiming the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle on Martello Tower in 2015.
In 2016, Heskin was appointed lead jockey for Gloucestershire trainer Tom George and a series of wins duly followed in the early stages of their partnership. Success with The Worlds End at the Aintree Festival and Double Shuffle at the 32Red Winter Festival at Kempton were undoubted highlights of their impressive first campaign.
The 2017-18 season may have only just got underway, but the wins have unsurprisingly continued to follow. With the perfect blend of experience, youth and ambition, Heskin will now be looking to cement his place as one of Great Britain and Ireland’s leading jockeys.
