Kevin Stott Named Retained Rider For Amo Racing

Group 1-winning rider Kevin Stott has been named the 2023 retained jockey for Amo Racing, Ltd. beginning on Mar. 1.

The 29-year-old, who currently leads the All-Weather Jockeys’ Championship, rode a career-high 116 winners in 2022. He was aboard Hello Youmzain (Fr) (Kodiac {GB}) when winning the 2020 G1 Platinum Jubilee.

“We’re delighted to have secured Kevin as our number one rider for the 2023 season,” said Amo Racing’s Kia Joorabchian. “He is super-talented, and we consider him as one of the top tier elite Flat jockeys.

“I am positive we can provide him with a platform from which he can excel further, and we look forward to a successful partnership.”

Added Stott, “The Amo Racing job is arguably one of the biggest. The strength and depth they have at their disposal is second to none and I’m very excited to be part of the team. I look at this as the beginning of a long and successful partnership.

“I want to ride the best horses in the best races and that is the level Amo operate at. I can’t wait to get started.”

Rossa Ryan held the role previously until last summer.
