Brendan Powell Jr is always going to have the issue of being compared to his dad throughout his riding career. His father won the Grand National in 1988 aboard Rhyme N Reason, something his son would love to emulate. There will also be talk about Brendan Powell Jr turning to training after his jockey career is over because that is something else his father did.
But in terms of Brendan himself, he’s got plenty of time left in front of him but has already found himself in the big races and taking rides on good horses. Powell Jr had his first Grand National ride as a teenager, where he rode Battle Group in the 2014 race for trainer Johnny Farrelly.
A year later gave Powell Jr his first completion in the race, and it was an outstanding effort. This time he rode Royale Knight, trained by Richard Newland and finished sixth in the race. He’s since bettered that, but even at a very young age, not only was Powell in the big races, but he was also performing well.
His father won the Grand National in 1988, and it would be no shock to see Powell Jr follow that up at some point, such has been the great start to his young career.
