I am a horse racing fan. I'm from a family of ex jockeys so I suppose you could say I was born in to it.

Yes Larry, I agree with your comment. My Dad had the privilege of riding Crisp in his biggest wins in Australia before he went to the UK. It’s a real shame that Dad didn’t get the opportunity to ride him in the GN at Aintree as the outcome may have been very different. He was very attuned to the horses’ capabilities and their great partnership was proved many times over given the success they had together. It goes to show that horses do sense a jockey that understands them and as a result the combination can be very rewarding. Hugh Bowman and Winx is proof of that. Thanks Larry for adding to the conversation!
