Andrea Atzeni was born on 26 March 1991(age 30 years) in Sardinia, Italy. He is a professional Italian jockey who is based in England.
Andrea’s family has no history of racing; his father is a farmer and his mother a dentist.
Atzeni however expressed an interest in racing at a young age, competing in pony races in Sardinia. Aged 15, he moved to Milan and started working for Italian trainer Alduino Botti. Two years later he emigrated to England and joined the ‘Prestige Place’ stables of Alduino’s son Marco in Newmarket.
His first big success as a jockey came in the 2009 Cesarewitch Handicap, but he had to wait until 2012 for his first Group 1 win. This came on the Andreas Wöhler-trained Sortilege in the Premio Lydia Tesio ran at Capannelle Racecourse in Rome. Atzeni joined the stable of Roger Varian in 2013, where he was appointed stable jockey. This proved a fruitful move as he won his first British Group 1 race aboard the Varian-trained Kingston Hill in the Racing Post Trophy, as well 120 winners for the season.
In 2015 he won the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes on the Luca Cumani-trained Postponed, as Adam Kirby lost the ride.
