James McDonald


James McDonald, the riding genius known as ‘J-Mac’ hails from New Zealand where he was a top apprentice before relocating to Sydney to test his skills against the best in the world.

At only 28, he has already been the Champion Sydney Jockey 3 times, including 2018/19 where his 104 wins saw him the first rider to break the century since Darren Beadman's extraordinary number of 164 over a decade before.

J-Mac has claimed over 40 Group 1’s in his short career with many believing he might just become the greatest of all time if his career continues on this trajectory.
