In a series of quickfire interviews for the site in this addition I caught up with one of my personal favourite riders and that’s none other than Group race winning jockey Antonio Fresu. As a big fan of Meydan racing Antonio has excelled over there in recent years and is certainly a rider to keep an eye on. Hope you enjoy the quickfire questions!
1.) Who was the jockey that most inspired you?
“Too easy to say that was and still is Frankie (Dettori)”
2.) Who is your favourite horse of all time?
3.) Which horse would you say has been the best you’ve ridden?
“The best/favourite horse that I’ve ever ridden is Furia Cruzada.”
4.) Which is your favourite racecourse?
“Ascot and Doncaster.”
5.) Are there any horses your most looking forward to riding in the future?
“I look forward to ride every single horses that I’m booking for. In particular Furia Cruzada in the coming season in Dubai and El Rey Brillante a new horse in Erwan Charpy’s yard.”
I’d like to thank Antonio for his time and wish him every success for the rest of the year. I look forward to Meydan!
