Jamie Spencer made the surprising announcement yesterday that he would be retiring from being a jockey at the end of the year and it's hard to know the circumstances.

Jamie is only 34 which is very young - I was only warming up at that age!

He does take things to heart and who knows what is going on behind the scenes.

In the fullness of time, I am sure all will be revealed.

Maybe he wants to go training or do something different and if so it's a good time.


It is very hard to call what has made him take this route but it has got to have been a tough decision for him and something that he has had to have had a long think about and I wish him well in what he decides to do in the future.
