  • Walter Swinburn has sent out his last runners as a trainer and is handing in his training licence at the end of the month.

    The three-time Derby-winning jockey, who saddled his first Royal Ascot winner in June with Julienas in the Royal Hunt Cup, announced his retirement last month, citing economic reasons after his father-in-law Peter Harris, for whom he was a salaried trainer, stepped back from the business.

    But he may return to training again in the future. “Nothing has been ruled in, and nothing has been ruled out,” he told H&H.
