Lester Piggott, the   living legend!

1993 Agent to Lester Piggott, just for a few weeks!   Lester rang me during the winter from Hong Kong and asked me to work for him after my parting with Willie. I had already committed to commentating but managed to book a winner for him in a seller and also a decent ride in the 2,000 Guineas which was quite pleasing. A good way to end my agenting career!

 



1993-today, Racecourse commentator. Have called at every UK track including Cheltenham Festival, Grand National, York Ebor meeting, Glorious Goodwood. Have also called in Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, France and Spain (the only foreign commentator to call a race, in English, at San Sebastian in 2010). To call The Derby is the remaining and burning ambition.
