  • Despite a riding career which now spans 25 years, Craig Williams is still at the top of his game and is as hungry for success as when he started out as an apprentice for his father, Allan in 1993.

    The five-time Scobie Breasley Medal is yet to lift the Melbourne Cup, but has wins in the other three majors on his CV, including two Caulfield Cups, two Cox Plates and a Golden Slipper. He got last year’s Festival of Racing off to the perfect start by winning the Group 1 C.F. Orr Stakes on Hartnell for Godolphin, and will be keen to leave his mark on the 2019 Autumn Carnival.

    Williams has claimed the Victorian metropolitan jockeys’ premiership for the past two years, and is on course to make it three in a row having notched 38 city winners before the start of the Festival of Racing.
