25-year-old Oswald Wedmore is from East Sussex, England. In 2017 he graduated from the University of Reading with a BSc in Geography. He spent two years as a pupil assistant to trainer Roger Varian in Newmarket where his attention shifted from his background in National Hunt racing to the flat industry.
“I feel extremely privileged to find myself embarking on two years of education and travel centred around the animal I love most. I look forward to the many edifying experiences ahead as I attempt to fill the gaps in my wider experience of the sport, and I thank His Highness Sheikh Mohammed for his generous provision of the scholarship. When not spending time with horses I might be found cooking, running or reading the newspaper.”
