Did you know?

Connor King signed up as an apprentice with David Wachman while still in school and got his racecourse career off to the perfect start when riding Precious Stone to success at Leopardstown on his first ride on October 27th, 2012. He dominated the apprentice ranks the following year and was crowned champion with 37 winners. He completed the first double of his career at Bellewstown on July 5th, 2013 and but bettered that in no uncertain terms when riding four winners at Cork on August 6th. Those wins included his first stakes success on the Jessica Harrington-trained Royal Blue Star in the Listed Platinum Stakes. King lost his claim when riding his 95th winner on the Rodger Sweeney-trained Daliyan at Gowran Park on September 2nd, 2015.
