The awards keep coming for the Bowen family as the amazing progress of 16-year-old James was recognised on Tuesday at the BBC Wales Sport Awards.

The former Fishguard School pupil, from Little Newcastle in Letterston, was named the Carwyn James Young Sportsman of the Year at the ceremony in Celtic Manor, Newport.

The champion conditional jockey, son of jumps trainer Peter Bowen, had a memorable 2017-18 season. He rode 58 winners including the Coral Welsh Grand National at Chepstow on Raz De Maree, despite being only 16.

At 16-1, Raz De Maree was the oldest horse to win the Welsh National since the Second World War. Bowen's breakthrough came at the invitation of trainer Gavin Cromwell, but while he is still also riding winners for his father, the youngster is currently teamed with champion trainer Nicky Henderson.

Only last Friday his parents Peter and Karen received the Lifetime Achievement honour at the Sport Pembrokeshire Awards, and the family also cleaned up at the inaugural Welsh Racing Awards.

Representatices of Sport Pembrokeshire were also in attendance due to the county's role in the Go Out Get Active scheme, which won the The Getting Wales Active award.
