Leading jockey steps into the role for 2023/24 season
Rhino.Bet, a leading brand within Playbook Engineering’s award-winning platform, has announced that Grade 1 winning jockey Henry Brooke (pictured) has become its horse racing ambassador for the 2023/24 jumps season.
Brooke is one of the north’s leading jockeys, whose career high came in 2019 when he won the Grade 1 Fighting Fifth Hurdle at Newcastle on Cornerstone Lad. Other notable successes for the former Conditional Champion include wins in the Rendlesham Hurdle and Eider Chase along with three Rowland Meyrick Handicap Chase wins on three different horses for three different trainers.
Despite his share of injuries over the past three seasons, the 31-year-old has continued to make a name for himself as one of the leading jockeys on the Northern Racing circuit and his partnership with Oliver Greenall and Josh Guerriero is propelling him to even greater success. That alliance has included a first win for both parties in France with the talented Gesskille.
“I’m truly excited to be linking up with Rhino Bet,” Brooke said. “It’s putting a huge amount into sponsoring races at Carlisle, Market Rasen, Huntingdon and Nottingham and this ties in nicely with my role as Jockey Club Small Course Ambassador.
“I’m fitter than I’ve ever been as I have ramped up my gym work; cardio, high intensity interval training and strength conditioning topped off with my new ice bath. This training programme is translating into results on the track and I’m sure it will pay off for Rhino.Bet and its investment in me.”
“We’re thrilled to welcome Henry Brooke to the Rhino.Bet team,” the Head of Retention for Rhino.Bet, Ceiron Jones, said. “Henry is not only a top jockey but a really nice guy and we’re chuffed he’s chosen to carry the Rhino logo over the jumps this season. We’re continuing to invest in small course sponsorship this season and working with Henry complements that strategy perfectly.”
Being based in Middleham has allowed Brooke to develop working relationships with a number of the North’s leading trainers Brian Ellison and Adrian Keatley. As Rhino.Bet’s racing ambassador, Brooke will be previewing his rides as well as providing punters with unique insight into the life of a jockey as well as carrying the Rhino on his breeches.
