Young top gun Drayden VanDyke joins Naomi on Talk Racing To Me this week!
Recipient of the 2014 Eclipse Award as leading apprentice jockey, Drayden posted a strong 2020 thus far: securing four Grade 1s this year alone. But, what most people would currently be hearing about him is his historic recent 4th consecutive Grade 1 Starlet Stakes victory, making him the first ever jockey to do so.
Go-to rider for Hall of Famer Bob Baffert, Drayden has been aboard many of this decade’s superstars in the mornings, as well as finding the winner’s circle more often than not on top of horse racing’s crème de la crème.
Honest and open, Drayden reflects on 2020, highs and lows of his career, discusses the Santa Anita Park Sports Bubble, as well as divulging on more fun topics such as playing golf and poker, as well as his diverse taste in music.
Connect with Drayden on Twitter, and do ask him about horse racing, he’s happy to answer questions: @DraydenV & Instragram: @draydenv
