He is a regular at all the key flat meetings such as The Epsom Derby, Royal Ascot, Glorious Goodwood & the St Leger. One of his favourite courses to ride is Haydock Park (near Dascombe’s Manor House Stables in Cheshire), where he has ridden more winners than any other jockey. Among his scalps there last season was the Group 3 Rose of Lancaster Stakes with Teodoro.
When he’s not busy adding to his tally of over 1,000 winners, Kingscote’s idea of relaxing is to hurl around on a 600cc Yamaha.
He has a huge passion for motor bikes and spends most of his spare time zooming around Snetterton or Oulton Park.
Kingscote started out riding ponies on the beach at Weston-super-Mare during school holidays and at weekends.
He would spend up to eight hours a day as a teenager riding on the sand under the guidance of John Vowels. From there he progressed to the British Riding School then onto a job with Roger Charlton.
Kingscote is sponsored by Smarkets’ sportsbook app SBK who sponsor his riding breeches. He undertakes feature filming & video content for SBK, creates blogs and undertakes personal appearances amongst other commitments.
Kingscote is also famous for the many tattoos on his body.
The current all-weather Champion Richard Kingscote has agreed a long-term sponsorship agreement with SBK, as negotiated by LBM. The Sportsbook app will exclusively brand the flat jockey’s breeches for the foreseeable future. Richard will also provide some video content for SBK as well as making personal appearances. The 34-year-oldwore his gear for the first time last weekend, winning at Sandown aboard La Pulga on Friday before steering Roman Dragon to victory at Chester on Saturday before riding at Royal Ascot.
