Simon Price has long been a great jockey.

His son Will Price is a rising star in the Victorian apprentice jockey ranks, so when the youngest of the Price family wanted to be a hoop, it looked a no brainer.

Ben Price, now just 18, was indentured to Travis Doudle last year and the process of making a career in the saddle began culminating at Bordertown, in outback South Australia today, with Ben riding his very first winner.

He landed the victory aboard SPANISH HEIRLOOM (Barbados-Iberian Rubi), a nice filly trained by Doudle who led all the way at just her 2nd race start.

And it was young Ben Price’s 3rd ever ride in a race.

“Mum was not a fan at the start, not a fan of any of us really being jockeys, but she has got her head around it now,” he said.

“I told her she would have to put up with it because that is what I am doing.

“Dad on the other hand, is a huge influence and I sit down with him after trials and go through what I can do better, what is looking good.”

Mum Briony, the little sister of champion jockey Dwayne Dunn, was a jockey for seven years herself.

But try as she did, she failed in stopping him be a hoop like dad, and the runaway train has left the station now.

The lightweight hoop, who carried just 52kg aboard Spanish Heirloom at Bordertown, is now on his way.
