Seb Sanders

Seb Sanders (born September 25, 1971 in Birmingham, England) is a flat race jockey.

He came into racing by getting a job with trainer Bryan McMahon, and it was for McMahon that Sanders rode his first winner on 12 June 1990 on Band On The Run.

He was Champion Apprentice in 1995, and gained his first Group 1 success in 1997 in the July Cup at Newmarket on the 50-1 outsider Compton Place.

He took over from George Duffield in 2004 as first jockey to Sir Mark Prescott, and in 2006 Sanders rode Confidential Lady to victory in the French Oaks giving Prescott his first Classic success. Sanders was later banned for 8 days for excessive use of the whip, and thus missed the entire Royal Ascot meeting.

Sanders has been one of Britain's most successful flat race jockeys in recent years, having ridden over 100 winners every season for the last 5 seasons.

In the 2007 season Seb Sanders shared the British flat racing Champion Jockey's title with Jamie Spencer. On the final day of a thrilling season at Doncaster their seasonal totals finished level at 190-190, when Spencer won the very last race of the season.

Sanders' agent is Keith Bradley, a former freelance IT consultant, who has booked his rides for thirteen years. Bradley has also represented 3 former champion apprentice jockeys; Stephen Davies (1994), Seb Sanders (1995) and Tom Queally (1996).
