Luke Morris: The 'face' of All-Weather Championships

Sky Bet

Known as Britain's hardest working jockey, Luke Morris is becoming 'the face' of the innovative All-Weather Championships (AWC) which culminate on Good Friday with £1 million in prize money.

As a previous All-Weather Champion and currently lying in second place in the new AWC Season Jockeys' Championship, Luke is the perfect candidate to represent the All-Weather Championships.

On his travels, Luke will be writing a regular blog which will be published on www.awchampionships.co.uk

He will also be tweeting @Luke_Morris88 his latest news and insights into the AWC season.

Luke said: "I'm delighted and proud to be asked to represent the All-Weather Championships. It is a fantastic initiative by ARC across their three All-Weather tracks and The Jockey Club's Kempton Park.

"The All-Weather Championships have really made a difference to the winter season as the extra prize money has encouraged more trainers to keep horses in training during the winter months and we are seeing a lot more quality in the upgraded Class 2 and 3 races.

"Record times are continually being beaten which proves the better quality. Jockeys are flying back from Dubai for these races rather than just staying out there.

"I will of course be concentrating on the scene here with just the odd quick trip to Dubai like last week."

In the past few weeks, Luke has really hit form and he enjoyed a treble at Wolverhampton on January 20. Another winner followed on Sagesse at Kempton on January 22, before he rode the classy Robin Hoods Bay to victory on January 25 at Lingfield in the coral.co.uk Handicap, a Fast Track Qualifier for Good Friday's £1-million All-Weather Championships Finals Day.

Luke has accumulated a total of 46 AWC wins so far this season and sits second in the All-Weather Championships Jockeys' Table, with only Adam Kirby ahead of him. The leading rider at the end of the 2013/2014 AWC season will receive £10,000.
