Jamie Osborne was long regarded as one of our best National Hunt jockeys - now he is hitting the heights as a trainer. He took out a licence in 2000 and since then has enjoyed plenty of success as a Flat trainer. His best moment to date as a handler came in 2003 when he sent out Milk it Mick to Group 1 glory at Newmarket. The son of Millkom made his mark for Osborne's team winning the Darley Dewhurst Stakes (Class A) (Group 1) under D Holland.
Earlier in Osborne's career, he produced a sensational performance as a jockey at the Cheltenham Festival in 1992. He rode five winners at the Festival that year, including three in one day. Prestbury Park will always hold special memories for Jamie as he frequently rode winners there. These included a victory in the Champion Hurdle, a Champion Chase success, three Arkles and two Stayers' Hurdles wins.
Jamie's best season as a jockey was in 1996-97, recording 131 wins in total.
