Jockey Profile of Bryony Frost

Bryony is the daughter of Jimmy Frost who famously won the 1989 Grand National on Little Polveir.

Racing runs through the family with her grandfather Richard having been a trainer and her brother Hadden a Cheltenham Festival winning jockey.

Frost excelled in pony racing before moving on to point-to-points and had her first ride under rules in February 2013.

She rode her first winner aboard Current Event at Musselburgh in 2015 and joined the powerful Paul Nicholls stable the following year.

Bryony Frost – Key Jockey Stats

2017-18 was the breakthrough year for Bryony, riding 38 winners with a strike rate of almost 20%.

The following season was her best numerically with fifty winners and her mounts fell just short of £1 million in prize money.

She has been consistent ever since, with the next three seasons yielding 45, 47 and 43 winners respectively.

Her first Cheltenham Festival winner was Pacha Du Polder in the Foxhunter Chase in 2017 and her first Grade 1 was Frodon in the Ryanair Chase in 2019.

Bryony Frost Big Race Wins

Frost has formed an amazing alliance with Frodon who has supplied her with many of her biggest triumphs. He won the Old Roan Chase at Aintree and the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup in 2018 followed by the Cotswold Chase and the Ryanair Chase in 2019. His more recent victories include the Silviniaco Conti Chase and King George in 2020 and the Ladbrokes Champion Chase at Down Royal in 2021.

She has four Grade 1 victories in total, two with Frodon and two with the two-mile chaser Greaneteen. He won the Tingle Creek Chase and the Celebration Chase in 2021.

Bryony Frost Most Famous Victories

Frost’s brilliant all-the-way win on Frodon in the 2019 Ryanair Chase was one of her finest rides. Trainer Paul Nicholls had considered running the horse in the Gold Cup but wisely opted for the shorter Ryanair and Frost confidently sent him straight to the lead. He was headed at the second last by 33-1 outsider Aso but refused to be denied and fought back tenaciously to win by a length and a quarter.

Frodon and Frost repeated the performance in the King George in 2020. Starting at 20-1, he was seemingly the third choice of the Nicholls runners behind favourite Clan Des Obeaux and the talented Cyrname. Frodon made all the running and had enough in reserve to hold the fast-finishing Waiting Patiently with Clan Des Obeaux third and Cyrname pulled up.

Summary of Jump Jockey Bryony Frost

Bryony Frost has been a pioneer for female jockeys and is a brilliant rider over fences in particular.

Horse Racing Jockey Guides

As the Co-Founder of British Racecourses, I love the chance to share my enjoyment of racing with others. As a family, we have always loved the racing and went to Haydock races as kids, as often as we could. We are now lucky enough to own some fantastic racehorses who we will follow around the tracks and we have had some great wins. As part of British Racecourses, I enjoy visiting and reviewing the racecourses that we visit, all of which I think have something to offer and are brilliant in their own ways.
