NEWS: Jamie Codd retires from point-to-points
on 09 May 2021
The top amateur made the surprise announcement after riding his 972nd career winner on Sunday

JAMIE Codd has retired from riding in point-to-points.

The leading amateur rider revealed the news after riding a winner at Tattersalls Farm in Co Meath on Sunday. He has been The Irish Field Champion Point-to-Point Rider on two occasions and his career total of 972 winners between the flags leaves him a clear second on the all-time list behind Derek O'Connor.

Codd will continue to ride on the racecourse and has rides at Killarney on Monday.

A former champion amateur, he has ridden 10 Cheltenham Festival winners and a Grade 1 winner at the Punchestown Festival.

Another notable success to come his way was the Fox Hunters' Chase at Aintree in April of 2016 which he won the Enda Bolger-trained On The Fringe.

The Wexford man rode his first winners, both in point-to-points and on the racecourse, in late 2001.
