After considering his options for the winter months, Ben decided to take a job in Dubai as first jockey for Mussabah Al Mheiri.
The season has started very well, providing 7 winners and multiple places for an array of trainers & owners to date.
With the International Carnival set to begin on the 3rd of January 2019 Ben is very much looking forward to adding some big race wins at Meydan to make it a very successful first season in the U.A.E.
Riding out in Dubai provides Ben with the opportunity to meet new trainers and owners and improve on pace, timing and becoming more accustomed to the art of dirt racing.
This all contributes to Ben enhancing his race riding skills and awareness for the 2019 season in the UK.  Along with escaping the cold weather of course!
