Jockey Aidan Coleman
Aidan Coleman is an Irish Jump jockey based in Britain and who is retained by Venetia Williams where he has had over 2000 rides for the yard and counting.
He started his career in 2006 but it was only until the following season that he gained his first success under rules. He became conditional champion jockey for the 2008 season and was one of the youngest jockeys ever to compete in the Grand National at the age of 19.
But like most conditional jockeys starting out as a professional, it took awhile before he was getting booked more often as high profile trainers are often keen for new starters to learn their craft with smaller establishments before taking any undue risk on their better quality horses, unless the talent is very obvious from the outset.
In that regard, it has taken Coleman time to harness and fine tune his skills as a jump jockey.
However, by 2012 it appeared that Aidan Coleman was starting to learn quickly, registering 91 wins in a calendar year and went close to a century of winners the following season. Since 2014 he has recorded a century of winners every year and is well on target to repeat that feat once again.
What is missing from his CV is a win in a grade one race, he’s had 89 attempts to date without success and has finished on the podium 13 times. He has however won 42 pattern races, 14 of which have come in group two races.
There is strong possibility he will break his maiden at the highest level sooner rather than later, with Venetia Williams getting better quality horses than of late and the backing of other notable trainers such as Jonjo ONeil, and C Lavelle.
The tracks where he rides well are as follows; Stratford (47 wins), Uttoxeter (46 wins) and Worcester (45 wins)
