“I could never be cruel to a horse. I was often getting into trouble for not pulling the stick on them in a race.

If a horse was beaten, there was no use in me trying to persevere, so I sat quietly on them.

Of course, the stewards would call me in and give me a rap over the knuckles”.

“Meeting the Queen in Adelaide after the Queen’s Cup was a highlight of my career.”
