Sam Waley-Cohen

Amateur National Hunt jockey Sam Waley-Cohen marked the end of his time riding as a jump jockey on a high by winning the 2022 Grand National riding Noble Yeats.

Sam, who founded private dental group Portman Healthcare in 2008, is the most successful jockey ever over the Grand National fences, with seven victories to his name, including one in the National as well as finished second in 2011 when riding Oscar Time.

When not race-riding, Sam’s business activities led to his being nominated as Spears young entrepreneur of the year in 2011, and by 2020, his business had grown to over 160 practices and expanded to operate across Europe.
