BEN MELHAM

  • Australia

Beginning his career in 2003, Ben Melham was apprenticed to Darren Weir and then Hall Of Fame trainer Lee Freedman.
Rising through the Victorian jockey ranks over the years, it was in 2010/11 that Ben Melham first rode over 100 winners for the season.
In that same year, Melham claimed his first Group 1 win aboard champion mare Black Caviar in the Patinack Farm Classic which was also the first of many Group 1 victories for her.
In 2017 Ben Melham took out one of the biggest races in the country when winning the Group 1 Golden Slipper on She Will Reign, producing a daring ride to win the feature race.
