A Newmarket-on-Fergus jockey has been shortlisted for a top honour in the UK.

Dylan Hogan is nominated for Best Flat Ride of the Year in the Lesters following what has lauded “an audacious front running ride” in Wolverhampton in January of this year.

Wanaasah’s cosy victory at the beginning of the year earned Hogan a nomination alongside William Buick, Hollie Doyle and Tom Marquaand whose wins all took place from September onwards with Dylan’s success still earning plaudits ten months on.

Already this year, the past pupil of St Caimin’s Community College has 23 winners. He previously represented his county in handball and is now hopeful the people of Clare will give him their backing in the public vote.
