Did you know:

From Kiltealy, County Wexford, Jordan began his career as an amateur rider and and had three point-point winners to his name when he partnered his first winner on the racecourse, the Colin Bowe-trained Cushinstown Finest, at Downpatrick in September, 2019. 

Jordan had planned to turn professional at the end of the 2020/2021 National Hunt season but brought forward his plans due to the curtailment of the point-to-point season during the Covid-19 pandemic. 

In all he rode 12 winners 'between the flags' and four winners as an amateur. He made a flying start to his career in the paid ranks, winning on each of his first two rides as a conditional jockey. He won on the Gordon Elliott-trained Fierami at Navan on Sunday, February 21, 2021 and followed up at Fairyhouse less than 24 hours later on the Colin Bowe-trained Mt Leinster Gold at Fairyhouse. 

Jordan's remarkable early success was highlighted by his initial Cheltenham Festival winner which came on Emmet Mullins-trained The Shunter in the Paddy Power Plate Handicap Chase less than a month after he turned professional. He rode a treble at Down Royal on Bank Holiday Monday, May 3, on three horses trained by Denise Foster, Don Diablo, Tullybeg and Fancy Foundations.
