The 2021 winner of the Go Racing In Yorkshire Future Stars Apprentice Series, supported by White Rose Saddlery is Oisin McSweeney. Oisin is based at the Hambleton yard of Kevin Ryan. He arrived in England in September 2020 without a winner to his name and has amassed an amazing 23 winners this year with a strike rate of 16%. We look forward to following Oisin through 2022 and as an introduction here’s a clip of his winner in the series last year.
