Best Jockeys of all Time

Best Jockeys of all Time

Every once in a while, in all sports, somebody comes along who is slightly different. They push the boundaries, they elevate themselves above everyone else in their field and set themselves apart with extraordinary skill, drive and determination. This is certainly true in the realms of horseracing, the sport has seen many superstar horses but sometimes the unsung heroes are the ones leading them around the track who over the course of their career have certainly affected the horse racing betting odds:

Lester Piggott

Lester Piggott is considered one of, if not the best horse racing jockey there has ever been, with 4,493 career wins. He began his career racing out of his father’s stable when he was just 10 years old, winning his first race at 12 years old on a horse called The Chase at Haydock Park. By the time he was in his teens he had become a sensation in the racing world winning the Epsom Derby at 18 year old on Never Say Die. As a rather tall jockey at 5 feet 8 inches he developed a new riding style names “The Long Fellow” which has been widely adopted by other jockeys all over the world and allowed him to become Champion Jockey 11 times. His last official race was in 1994 and he retired in 1995.

Ruby Walsh

Beginning his career winning the Irish Amateur Jockey title twice in 96/97 and 97/98 he showed great promise. This promise was realised then Walsh won the Grand National at his first attempt in 2000, aged 20, on Papillon. With over 2000 winners over the course of his career so far Ruby is seen as one of the best jockeys of all time but it’s at Cheltenham where he’s really made his name. In all of his races at Cheltenham he’s amassed 56 winners at The Festival with this being named as the leading rider at the event for 11 of the last 14 meetings.

Frankie Dettori, MBE

Dettori has been named by another man on this list, Lester Piggott, as the greatest jockey currently in the saddle and it’s not hard to see why. Over the course of his career Frankie has win in excess of 500 group races, whilst as impressive that is, his greatest achievement will take some serious time to be matched. On British Champions Day at Ascot in 1997, Dettori rode all 7 winners etching himself into racing folklore.

Gordon Richards

As the only ever flat jockey to have been knighted, I’m sure you will appreciate how high Gordon Richards is held in esteem amongst the racing faithful. Considered by most to be the greatest jockey that has ever lived Gordon was named British flat racing Champion 26 times over the course of his career that included 4,870 wins. Unfortunately Gordon died in 1986 and has set a record many believe will never be matched.

AP McCoy

Taller than the majority of jockeys on the circuit at 5ft 10, AP McCoy is one of the greatest jockeys to have ever saddled up, riding 4,358 Jumps winners and even 9 Flat Race winners for good measure. He began his career as a 17 year old in Ireland and raced most of his career for Martin Pipe. He was awarded an OBE in 2010 and knighted in 2016.
