Did you know:

From Kiltrea, Caim, County Wexford, James Joseph Slevin began his career as an amateur rider and turned professional in August 2016. He rode 34 winners "between the flags" with his first success coming on Herecomestherain, trained by his father Shay, at Ballydarragh on November 14th, 2010. His first winner on the racecourse proper came on the John Clifford-trained Chapel Garden in the Curaheen INH Flat Race at Thurles on December 22nd, 2013. In all, he rode 11 winners as an amateur, including two for trainer Nigel Twiston-Davies in Britain. His first success as a professional came when he dead-heated on the Sean Doyle-trained Craig Star with Liam Cusack's Lasoscar in the Tote Handicap Hurdle at Roscommon on August 29th, 2016. Just four days later, he enjoyed his first outright success when Doyle's Crosshue Boy landed the Martinstown Opportunity Handicap Hurdle at Kilbeggan. He was still an amateur when enjoying a notable success on the Richie Rath-trained Moylisha Tim in a Grade 3 novice hurdle at Cork in November 2015 but a higher profile success came his way at the Cheltenham Festival in March 2017 when he landed the Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys' Handicap Hurdle on the Gordon Elliott-trained Champagne Classic. JJ holds a degree in journalism from Griffith College, Dublin.
