Spend half an hour with Richard Hughes, champion flat jockey.
‘Hughesie’ made me coffee, served me biscuits and then sat down for a chat with me. Members will see that interview in full very shortly. Be among the first to see the 35 minute interview with the champion flat jockey.
He talks candidly to me about his life and times in racing.
He remembers the high profile winners, the losers that left punters exasperated, he talks about his distinctive riding style and about great rides on horses such as Canford Cliffs and Paco Boy.
‘Hughesie’ is very animated when talking about the exhilaration of riding a winner when coming from the back of the field and just knowing that he is going to win the race.
Richard Hughes had a turbulent few years and he talks openly about his battle with the booze and of how fellow jockey Johnny Murtagh helped him conquer alcoholism.
He reflects on the past flat season that saw him win the title and reveals how many winners he wants to ride next season.
Richard Hughes tells punters what to look out for when placing a bet and looks forward to his life in racing after he retires as a jockey.
