60 Seconds with Holly Andrew
From unfinished business to motocross riding, check out what we covered in 60 seconds with Central District Jockey Holly Andrew.
What made you want to pursue a career in racing?
Racing was a way I was able to ride and earn a living at the same time - The best of both worlds.
What do you love most about racing?
Winning races of course! I also love seeing happy owners when returning to scale following a race.
Do you have a favourite horse?
Spendaholic. Having teamed up with her early on in my career and having success is something I’ll always remember. Being owned and trained by a small group of women who I formed great friendships with made it all the more special.
Who in the industry do you look up to?
Mr Gray has been the driving force behind my career. I look up to him not only for that but for his work ethic and his horsemanship skills as well. He is also a true gentleman.
What race would you love to win?
I have some unfinished business with the Cuddle Stakes at Trentham, having fallen in the race (from Bronsteel in 2018). So I would like to win that.
If you weren’t in racing what would you be doing?
Trying to pursue a career as a professional female motocross rider. Having that fail, fire fighting.
What’s one thing people would be surprised to know about you?
I broke my back when I was 16 (in a riding accident).
If you could switch lives with someone for a day, who would it be?
The person who won $38million in lotto the other week!
If you could invite 3 people to dinner who would you invite?
Pablo Escobar, Donald Trump and Elvis Presley.
