2021 THE JOCKEY CLUB ACHIEVEMENT AWARD
WINNER: Rodi Greene
RUNNERS-UP: Charlotte Mitchell & Eva Moscrop
Three finalists for the JETS Richard Davis Achievement Award were selected by the judging panel. Rodi Greene (Jockey Coach), Charlotte Mitchell (Thoroughbred Nutritionist) and Eva Moscrop (Coffee Shop Owner) were shortlisted from the original set of entries and former Jump jockey Rodi Greene won the £3000 prize. Rodi retired from riding in 2011 after a career ending injury and from there established himself as a jockey coach, working with jockeys right from the beginning in pony racing through to winning Apprentice Championships. Rodi has used his 23 years of experience as a jockey coach to guide jockeys through the ups and downs of their careers, always being available whether walking the course, schooling at home or over the phone giving race feedback. He has coached some of racing's biggest names including Tom Marquand, Hollie Doyle, Lizzie Kelly and Harry Cobden but is equally passionate about every jockey he works with helping everyone be the best they can possibly be.
