David Egan and Prince Faisal

Mystery as £10.5million Duo – One of the Best Ever in Racing – Announce Split as Jockey Chooses Not to Ride For Owner

ONE of the biggest money-earning partnerships in racing has mysteriously come to an end after David Egan, the jockey chose not to cease riding for the owner, Prince Faisal.

David Egan, 23, from Ireland, has won more than £10.5million in the saddle of globe-trotting superstar Mishriff – the highest-earning horse still in training.

With the mega money-making partnership of Egan and Mishriff coming to an end, one of the implications of the fallout is that one of the best rides in the world is up for grabs

The pair won the world’s richest race, the Saudi Cup, in February 2021 before adding the Dubai Sheema Classic and the Juddmonte in a stellar 2021.

The association has come to an immediate end with James Doyle booked to ride the Roger Varian-trained Sajwaan at Newbury on Saturday.

In a statement, Prince Faisal’s racing manager Ted Voute said: “Prince Faisal asked me to update the press regarding his retained jockey.

“David Egan has not signed his 2022 riding contract, so Prince Faisal has decided to revert to best available jockey, starting with Sajwaan, a first-time-out two-year-old that runs on Saturday who will be ridden by James Doyle.”
