David Egan Bio
It was hardly a surprise when David Egan set his heart on being a jockey. He has been surrounded by racing from day one.
His father, John, has ridden more than 1,000 winners and is still going strong at the age of 52. Sandra Hughes, his mother trained the Irish Grand National winner Thunder And Roses.
David’s uncle is the former champion jockey-turned-trainer Richard Hughes. His grandfather was the late Dessie Hughes, rider of Monksfield and the trainer of dual Champion Hurdle winner Hardy Eustace.
Brought up around horses on The Curragh, Egan has lived in Newmarket since he left school.
He has struck up a magnificent partnership with the exceptional globetrotting star Mishriff which in 2021 has proved very fruitful. Wins in the Sheema Classic and Saudi Cup were followed by a breathtaking performance in a high-class Juddmonte International.
