Since riding his first winner in 1996 at Wellington, NSW, Hugh Bowman has become one of Australia’s premier jockeys.  With more than 25 Group One winners, Bowman’s career in the saddle began through pony clubs and polocrosse.
His move to Sydney in 1997 kicked off his rise to the top echelon of Australia's jockeys.  Bowman has also ridden overseas with his wife Christine having been born in Ireland.
Claiming Sydney jockeys' premierships in season 2008/09 (60 winners) and the State premiership in 2011/12 (93.5 winners), his on-track rivalry with Nash Rawiller delivered some intriguing struggles for those titles.
