Scudamore lands job as Pipe rider
Tom Scudamore
Scudamore has ridden 48 winners so far this season
Tom Scudamore has been appointed as the stable jockey to trainer David Pipe.

The 24-year-old rider is stepping into the footsteps of his father Peter, who was champion jockey when retained by Pipe's father Martin.

"It will start with immediate effect and obviously it is very exciting to get the Pipe-Scudamore partnership back again," said Pipe junior.

Timmy Murphy will continue as the retained jockey for Pipe's leading owner David Johnson.

"Tom had been offered the job at other stables but we were very keen to keep him here so he will be riding the majority of our horses from the yard," said Pipe, who took over from his father at the end of last season.

Scudamore, who became a professional jockey in 2001, has had several big winners this season, including the Ladbroke Hurdle on Desert Air and the Red Square Gold Cup on Heltornic.

Peter Scudamore was champion jump jockey on eight occasions between 1983 and 1993.

His career total of 1,678 winners has been surpassed by only Tony McCoy and Richard Dunwoody.

The 61-year-old Pipe was champion trainer a record 15 times before handing over control of his Somerset yard to his 34-year-old son.
