Blair joined us in the summer of 2016, riding out and keen to take out his conditional license again. He had previously ridden winners in point to points, where he was the Northern Area novice champion and under rules including for Alistair Whillans and Nick Alexander. Blair has had a good grounding with bringing on young horses, and is excellent with any quirky ones; his patience and skill has led to wins with the headstrong Saint Freule and also multiple wins on older horses such as Thorpe, Bialco, young stars such as Mighty Thunder and many mares including the multiple winners Haul Us In, Catchthemoonlight, Aurra Thunder and Calle Malve. Cool in a race, he can carry out riding instructions to the letter and his results have led to more rides for the yard and outsiders. In his spare time he likes to head to the golf course.
