I’m sure he will be green and babyish today but he’s one that will be a nice horse for George later on in the year. I’m on Seafront in the 3.45 Fillies Sprint and... View A... more...

He’s a brilliant jockey, and actually people see a different side to him than I do. I’ve always found him to be really kind and he would do anything for anybody. He was a tough competitor, hard to ride against and from around 2000-2006, he was at the peak of his powers, alm... more...
