Jockey Paddy Brennan has clocked up his 1,000th jumps win in Britain and Ireland at Warwick.

Brennan reached the mark on favourite Colin's Sister, trained by Fergal O'Brien, in the mares' novices hurdle.

The 35-year-old Irishman, who won the Cheltenham Gold Cup in 2010 on Imperial Commander, said: "My ambition ever since I came to England was to ride 1,000 winners and win a Gold Cup.

"I count myself very lucky. It's a landmark I'm very proud of."

As well as Imperial Commander, Brennan has ridden top-class horses including Cue Card, Inglis Drever and Tidal Bay.

He is one of an elite group to pass the 1,000 winners mark, although he is a long way short of the all-time record of 4,358 held by Sir Anthony McCoy.
