Type: Visiting Jockey

Nationality: British

Background:
Age: 32. Norwegian-born William Buick was joint champion apprentice in Britain in 2008 and rode his first G1 win on Lahaleeb in the E P Taylor Stakes the following year. He was appointed stable jockey to John Gosden in 2010 and the partnership started with a bang as he rode Dar Re Mi to win the G1 Dubai Sheema Classic. In late 2014, he began his association with Sheikh Mohammed's Godolphin operation, primarily riding for trainer Charlie Appleby. This partnership quickly proved fruitful as he took the G1 Dubai World Cup the following March on Prince Bishop. His list of 63 G1 wins includes four on star sprinter Dream Ahead, as well as the Dubai World Cup (2015 Prince Bishop), and nine in 2018 featuring the QEII Cup on Pakistan Star, the English Derby aboard Masar and Japan's Mile Championship on Stelvio. His recent exploits at the top-level include three G1s aboard Godolphin's Ghaiyyath, who claimed the Coronation Cup, Eclipse Stakes and Juddmonte International Stakes. While his most recent at G1 level came aboard Wonderful Tonight in the British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes on Champions Day at Ascot.
