Nathan has won the Scottish Sprint Handicap on Hoofalong and the Stewards Sprint Cup on Hoof It. He has also recorded multiple wins on Bosham, Black Grass, Bajan Rebel and Bowson Fred. Nathan is becoming a familiar name in the big races and rode out his claim when winning on Hernando Torres in July 2017.
In April 2017 Nathan rode the first treble of his career at Redcar, with wins aboard Stubytuesday, Roller and Carlton Frankie.
After suffering a horrific fall at Ripon in August 2017, and six months on the sidelines, Nathan returned to race riding in February 2018 and rode his 100th career winner in March.
