Sky Betting & Gaming Produces Horseracing Documentary with ITV

Reading Time: < 1 minute


Sky Betting & Gaming and ITV have produced a new documentary on professional horse racing.

The documentary focuses on the racing career of Sky Bet brand ambassador and National Hunt jockey Daryl Jacob.

ITV Racing leader Ed Chamberlin said: “The life of a jockey is one of the most challenging and at times brutal career paths any athlete can take.

“From the early mornings to the constant risk of serious injury, you have to be an incredibly hard nut to crack to choose that path in life.

“This documentary provides an excellent insight into Daryl and his family’s life, what drives him and the obstacles he has to overcome to get to where he is today.”

Jacob said: “It was an honor to give the boys some access to the daily world we jockeys live in through the racing calendar.

“Hopefully fans of the sport and others will be able to take away something they did not know before, or that allows them to see things in a slightly different way.”

Sky Bet Content Manager Kevin Brain said: “We want to thank Daryl for being so generous with the timing of the filming of Being a Jockey. I think everyone will see clearly from the film what a dedicated and inspiring man Daryl is – and what challenges and which he faces to reach the top of the sport.

“Jockeys are some of the most hardworking, resilient and dedicated professionals in the world, and we wanted to show their story in an entertaining and modern way.”
