2000 Winners for Luke Morris

Luke Morris and Alpinista winning the Arc | ScoopDyga

Jockey Luke Morris, best known for his winning ride aboard Kirsten Rausing's Alpinista (GB) (Frankel {GB}) in this year's G1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, registered the 2000th victory of his career when guiding Recuerdame (The Factor) to a half-length success Monday at Lingfield.

Though he currently sits on 94 winners for the year, Morris has brought up better than 100 each year since 2011.

Eight of Morris's nine career Group 1 winners has come for Alpinista's trainer Sir Mark Prescott, who told Sporting Life: “Its a great tribute to his professionalism, reliability and work ethic. The eight Group 1 winners he has ridden for me show how good he is on the big day as well. However, both he and I have somewhere to go before we reach the 700-plus winners George Duffield rode for me!”
