Racing UK’s Seb Vance and leading rider Ryan Moore

Ryan Moore was today crowned Racing UK Qatar Goodwood Festival Top Jockey for the third time with an amazing eight wins at the Sussex course this week.

Only Richard Hughes has won more races at the five-day Festival – nine in 2010 – and Moore signed off with a double courtesy of Minding and Lockheed on Saturday, following his treble on Friday.

Moore, who last won the title in 2009, receives a lifetime subscription to Racing UK (Sky 432/Virgin 536 and 411/Freeview 231), a £1,000 donation to the charity of his choice, and a deluxe Goodwood hamper.

Moore has split his donation between Great Ormond Street Hospital and Daily Mirror correspondent David Yates’s bike ride around Yorkshire, which was in aid of the Injured Jockey’s Fund’s Jack Berry House.
