Journalist sheds four stone to become jockey

A former journalist has ditched his excessive lifestyle and lost four stone to become a racing jockey, reports The Daily Telegraph.

Dominic Prince, 47, has been training for ten weeks and ran his first race in Towcester, Northamptonshire on Wednesday.

Prince used to work as a journalist in London, and is married to Daily Telegraph food writer Rose Price and said being married to her hasn’t helped with his health.

“It has not helped being married to one of the best cooks in the country. Without wanting to blame her for my greed and gluttony, she does always produce more than strictly necessary. There was lots of game, lots of cheese and lots of wine and I didn’t eat that many vegetables.”
