Oisin Orr has been appointed the stable jockey for British trainer Richard Fahey.
The Donegal man takes over from Paul Hanagan who ended his stint with Fahey earlier this week.
Orr has ridden winners for the Malton yard at Ayr and Ripon in the last few days.
The champion apprentice in 2017 said: “Richard rang me to come over for a week and try it – ‘See how you get on,’ he said. I’ve loved it so far and I’ve no plans on going home.
“I’m living in Richard’s house at the minute, but hopefully in the near future I’ll get my own place and we’ll go from there.
“I’ve been getting rides every day which is great. That doesn’t happen in Ireland unless you are stable jockey. I’ve no plans on going home. I’m loving it.”
