Sixteen-year-old Fern O’Brien takes a break from homework to win at Sandown! – Racing TV

Racing TV published this video item, entitled “Sixteen-year-old Fern O’Brien takes a break from homework to win at Sandown! – Racing TV” – below is their description.

The young rider, daughter of leading jumps’ trainer Fergal, showed what a rising talent she is with an easy win on Maysong. She said afterwards: “It was amazing but it wasn’t exactly difficult as he made it easy for me. Long-term, I want to just be Jump racing as that is more my style of riding but while I’m getting as much as experience as I can it is brilliant to be riding on the Flat and in these amateur races. I’ve got one more year of school doing my A-Levels then hopefully I will turn conditional this time next year if I am good enough.”
