Alex Hammond joined Sky Sports News as a racing expert in June 2003 and has since become a regular presenter on Good Morning Sports Fans. Alex is a born and bred horse racing fan who began her working life as an assistant in the pedigree department of one of the top thoroughbred studs in the UK.
She then worked as secretary and work rider for top racehorse trainers Jack & Lynda Ramsden in Yorkshire before becoming a reporter/presenter on the dedicated horseracing channel The Racing Channel. Since then she has worked as a racing presenter on Talksport radio and written columns for The Daily Mail.
In her time at Sky Sports, Alex has interviewed a number of top names in racing, most notably Sir Alex Ferguson, Sir Bobby Robson, Mick Channon, Frankie Dettori, AP McCoy, Pat Eddery and many more.
Working early mornings on Sky Sports News allows Alex to return home in time to watch the afternoon’s racing and she also spends her spare time riding racehorses.
Alex has had over 50 rides as an amateur jockey – including being placed in Ascot’s valuable Diamond Race on a horse part owned by Jimmy Tarbuck! – and insists she will ride in races again when the opportunity presents itself, as she is determined to ride a winner one day.
As well as horse racing, Alex is a big football fan who supports her home town club Sheffield United.
