MARK ZAHRA

  • Australia

Mark grew up near Perth and was apprenticed to Dean White with his first ride on dirt at Geraldton Racecourse in 1998.

After honing his skills in Western Australia, Zahra completed his apprenticeship with leading handlers Brian Cox and then Tony McEvoy.

His first G1 victory was on the Jim Conlan-trained Above Deck in the 2006 Doomben Cup.

He rode as a retained second jockey to Sheikh Mohammed Darley's operation in Melbourne behind Kerrin McEvoy for three-years.

Over the last 10 years he has established himself as one of Australia's leading riders and in the 2015/16 season registered his first century, ending the campaign with 110 wins in total.

He has ridden overseas in Hong Kong, Japan, Macau, New Zealand and Singapore before riding in the Shergar Cup of 2019.
