O'Regan loosens links with trainer Ferguson
DENIS O'REGAN will pursue more options as a freelance rider this season after loosening his association with trainer John Ferguson, for whom who he has ridden as primary jockey over the past two seasons.
O'Regan, 32, has partnered 55 winners from 250 rides for Newmarket-based Ferguson since the 2011-12 season including a Grade 1 success on Ruacana in the Future Champions Finale Juvenile Hurdle at Chepstow.
The rider said: "I have been a freelance since I left Howard Johnson but I have ridden predominantly for John Ferguson over the past two seasons
"I will continue to be freelance this season and work hard as I always have done to ride for as many trainers as possible and that includes John Ferguson. I wish him and his team all the best for the future."
O'Regan rode 64 winners last season, his best tally since reaching 65 in 2009-10.
