With a background in equestrian and raised on a farm outside of Geelong, Damien Thornton began his career in 2011.
Damien Thornton had an immediate impact on the Victorian jockey ranks riding 25 metropolitan winners and in 2013 took an opportunity to move to Sydney and ride for Rosehill based trainer Gerald Ryan.
