Did you know: 

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. 

The likes of Master Matt, Saltonstall and Maker Of Kings gave Sam some notable success in the early months of his career and the former credited him with his first Listed race victory at Tipperary in August 2021.
