Fallon backed to follow in father’s footsteps

Cieren Fallon is being backed to follow in his father Kieren’s footsteps and become champion jockey one day.

The teenager, the son of the six-time champion jockey, chalked up his first ever win on Monday when guiding 25/1 shot Plucky Dip to victory at Leicester.

Pucky Dip’s trainer John Ryan admitted that Fallon junior was ‘one to watch’.

“I don’t want to put him on too high a pedestal, but he’s been well schooled by his dad. He’s not just been given it, though, he’s a hard-working lad and he’d earned his chance of a ride….he’s certainly one to watch.”

Bookmakers are taking Fallon junior very serious, he just 10-1 with Coral to be Britain’s champion jockey in the future.

Fallon junior is 4-1 with Coral to be crowned champion apprentice at some point, and 8-1 to ride a UK Classic winner before the end of 2025.

“Six time champion Kieren Fallon was 19 years old when he first rode his first winner, so son Cieren has matched his dad on that score, now only time will tell if he can emulate him and become champion himself one day, an outcome we certainly think is not impossible,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
