Frederik 'Freddy' Tylicki (born c.1986) is a German-born former flat racing jockey in Great Britain. He was British flat racing Champion Apprentice in 2009, when he also won the Lester Award for Apprentice Jockey of the Year. His Polish-born father Andrzej Tylicki was three times champion jockey in Germany.

He began learning the racing trade in Ireland under trainers Dermot Weld and Jim Bolger. Tylicki was then apprenticed to Richard Fahey in Malton, North Yorkshire. His first big race victory came in 2008, when he won the John Smith's Cup at York on Flying Clarets. He finished that year with 25 wins from 163 rides. In the 2009 season, he built on this initial success to narrowly beat David Probert to the title of British flat racing Champion Apprentice. Probert was suspended for the final day of the flat racing season when just a single victory separated them. Tylicki donated his trophy to the family of fellow apprentice Jamie Kyne, who had recently died in a house fire. At the end of the season, he wintered in California to enhance his skills, riding for trainer Paddy Gallagher.

In September 2012 he rode five winners for five different trainers at Newcastle on a Saturday, followed by a double on two outsiders at Yarmouth on the following Thursday. Semayyel, trained by Clive Brittain won the John Musker Fillies' Stakes at a starting price of 125-1, one of the biggest priced winners in British horse racing history, and Tylicki followed up with a win on a 33-1 horse. For the former achievement he won the Flat Jockey Award at the annual 'Magic Moments' awards dinner.
