From Ballyclare, Country Antirm, Sam is a son of trainer and former amateur rider Warren Ewing. He was a pony racing star, riding over 100 winners and landing the 2017 Dingle Derby as a 13-year-old. He rode his first winner on the racecourse when partnering the Ger Lyons-trained Ardhoomey to success in a sprint handicap at Cork in August 2020. It was his tenth ride.
