Willy Twiston-Davies says calling time on his jockey career was a tough decision but is now optimistic about what the future holds.
Twiston-Davies has been out on the sidelines since breaking two vertebrae and two ribs in a fall from Foxtail Hill on the opening day of this year's Cheltenham Festival.
Despite recovering from the injuries, the 23-year-old has taken the decision to call time on his racing career and now hopes new opportunities open up for him.
He said: "In some ways it was a tough decision to make and obviously I will miss it a lot, but at the same time I can see myself training one day, perhaps when dad (Nigel Twiston-Davies) calls it a day, and I'm also keen to concentrate on the bloodstock side of things.
"Now I've made this decision and it's out there, hopefully it might open a few more opportunities."
