Punters were completely puzzled when the name J. Van Overmeire started to appear in Sydney race fields, just over two years ago.
They quickly learned that the young jockey was apprenticed to Bjorn Baker, and they quickly learned that he could ride a bit.
One hundred and fifty two winners later, Jean is accepted by both punters and trainers alike.
His journey through several countries makes a fascinating story, and Jean is happy to share it with us on the podcast.
