Having made his debut at Kilmuckridge in November 2004 and got off the mark with John Halley's Templars at Butlerstown in 2006, Pa King quickly became the Champion Novice rider, being crowned champion in 2008 following a total of 16 winners - his best single season total to date. Since then, King, whose brother Johnny was also a jockey and James is a trainer, has ridden the likes of Parsons Pistol, Pandorama, Any Currency, Tina Kelly Lad, Alfa Beat and Draycott Place to victory. At Mainstown in 2019, Pa became the 60th rider to reach the 100-winner mark with the success of Go To Court in a season where he claimed a first regional title in the South. Further title success followed when he landed the Western title in 2022 the same year that he broke the top-three riders nationally, and he defended that title in 2023, the same season which brought him his biggest career success with victory aboard Angels Dawn in the Kim Muir at the Cheltenham Festival.
