Apprentice jockey Lewis Walsh has swapped Newmarket Heath for the sunshine of Florida for a month-long spell based with leading US trainer, Graham Motion.

Attached to Newmarket trainer David Simcock’s yard, Walsh landed the biggest win of his career to date when he rode the Simcock-trained Breton Rock to victory in the QIPCO Future Stars Apprentice Handicap, the final race at Ascot on QIPCO British Champions Day.

The victory entitled him to a trip to America where he is now riding out for Graham Motion, trainer of the Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom.
