As part of our ongoing efforts to make more racing fans aware of geegeez.co.uk, I’m delighted to share that we’ve agreed a significant new sponsorship for the 2019 season.
Alongside the existing arrangements we have to display the geegeez logo on the kit of 100+ winners per season flat rider David Probert, exciting conditional Rex Dingle, and the top class jumps stable of Anthony Honeyball, you’ll now see the increasingly familiar blue and white livery on the breeches of the northern racing scene’s rising star, Callum Rodriguez.
Rodriguez had a breakthrough season in 2018, riding 68 winners. That followed 39 victories in 2017 and 13 in the previous two seasons. He’s already scored nine times in 2019 and looks set for another career best this year.
Riding mainly for the stables of Michael Dods and Keith Dalgleish, Callum – who is based in Malton, North Yorkshire – has won on horses trained by 22 different trainers since the start of last year, including the likes of Brian Ellison and Stuart Williams.
Last season’s highlights included wins aboard Get Knotted at York, and Intense Romance in a pair of Listed races at Ayr and Ascot. His career highlight to date was, of course, winning the Ebor, Europe’s most valuable handicap, in 2017 atop the durable and talented Nakeeta.
I’m really excited to see how ‘Cal Rod’ goes this term, and of course, I’m thrilled to see such an upwardly mobile, talented and ambitious jockey as Callum sporting our brand. He shares the geegeez.co.uk ethos and seems to be a great lad.
Welcome, then, to Callum Rodriguez!
