Following a series of injuries sustained as a National Hunt rider, the 36-year-old Grand National-winning Galway-man decided to try his hand on the level in the spring and picked up 87 victories to finish eighth in the jockeys' championship in Britain.
Lee has continued to ply his trade on the all-weather during the winter and rattled off the century by bringing the Jeremy Noseda-trained 1-2 favourite Prophets Pride home in the Dine In Horizons Median Auction Maiden Stakes.
