Teddy Grimthorpe has been revealed as the new race manager for owner Imad Al Sagar, who will continue to employ jockeys Hollie Doyle and Martin Dwyer in 2022.

Grimthorpe, 67, was the public face of the late Khalid Abdullah’s Juddmonte operation before stepping down as race manager in June after serving the role for 22 years, during which time Frankel and Enable wore the owner’s signature green, pink and white silk.

Since leaving Juddmonte, Grimthorpe has been named chairman of the National Stud at Newmarket, and sits on the board of the owner of the National Stud, the Jockey Club, and of York Racecourse. He will start his new role next month.

He said: “I am very touched that I have been asked by Imad Al Sagar to join his team. He has built up an impressive blood record and I look forward to providing all possible assistance with his surgery.”

Co-owner of 2007 Derby winner Al Sagar, authorized and 2006 Irish 2000 Guineas winner Arafa, has continued to breed and race horses in Britain after his partner, Saleh Al Homaizi, retired from operation in 2018. .

Al Sagar, who operates Blue Diamond Stud near Newmarket, rode 22 individual horses for eight trainers in Britain last year, led by Nazanin, winner of the Group 3 Firth of Clyde Stakes.

She was aided in that win by Hollie Doyle, who said she was “delighted to be working with the owner for a third year.” Dwyer, who was named Al Sagar’s second jockey last summer, will continue in the role in 2022.

Grimthorpe replaces Tony Nerses, who was revealed in the Racing Post’s Front Runner on Thursday that he has left his position as race manager for Al Sagar after 20 years.

Al Sagar said: “We have taken the opportunity to restructure our team for 2022 and are delighted to welcome Teddy as Race Manager. Tony Nerses has contributed significantly to our growth and success and we wish him all the best in his future endeavours.”

Ted Voute has been named interim chief executive of Blue Diamond Stud, with Gerry Meehan as manager of the yearling and Nancy Sexton as bloodstock and media advisor.
