15th April 2014


Equine insurance specialists Amlin Plus have signed a year sponsorship deal with rising star Andrea Atzeni.

Amlin Plus specialises in insurance for the bloodstock and equine industry offering insurance policies to cover every risk a horse owner, breeder, trainer, transporter or business may face. Amlin Plus offers bespoke solutions for the worldwide bloodstock and equine industry from bloodstock, high value sport horse and competition horses to liability cover.

Twenty-three-year-old Atzeni began his career as apprentice to successful Milan based trainer Alduino Botti, father of the UK trainer Marco Botti. After success in Italy, Atzeni transferred to Botti’s in Newmarket. Atzeni’s first notable success in the UK came in 2009 on the David Simcock trained Darley Sun in the famous Cesarewich Handicap. In 2013, Atzeni won the Italian Derby and scored his first domestic Group 1 winner with Kingston Hill in the Racing Post Trophy, helping him to achieve an impressive 120 winners which put him ninth in the UK leading jockeys table.

Atzeni said, “I am delighted to be joining Amlin Plus and linking up with such a well-known and respected brand. I enjoy the support of top yards, principally trainers Roger Varian, Luca Cumani and Marco Botti and I am looking forward to working with Amlin Plus in furthering my profile.”

David Ashby, Managing Director of Amlin Plus added, “Andrea is a very talented young jockey whose career has really taken off over the last 12 months and we are delighted to be adding him to the high profile portfolio of jockeys we sponsor. We wish him the very best of luck for the coming flat season and look forward to working with him.”
