FROM Norway to Adelaide, via the United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom.

Young jockey Anna Jordsjo is extremely well travelled for a 20-year-old.

“I’ve been travelling for a few years. Contacts get you a fair way and I ended up in Australia,” Jordsjo told

“I started riding racehorses when I was 12. I started cantering and doing fast work when I was about 13 or 14, and got my license when I was 16.”

Jordsjo is hoping to make Adelaide home, well, at least for a while. The Norwegian is determined to join the quality band of youngsters learning the ropes under Bill Forrestal, Thoroughbred Racing Apprentice Academy boss.

“That’s my goal. I’ve got to get my visa sorted first. I’m looking forward to trying to get started again with my apprenticeship,” she added.
