Thanks for checking in on Tappy’s Racing Yarns!

It was a treat to watch Todd Pannell skilfully coax Despatch over the line to win the historic Goodwood Hcp on Saturday.

It gave the popular jockey his very first Group 1 win and trainer Tony McEvoy his maiden Goodwood success.

Todd is taller than the average jockey, but his style is much admired by his contemporaries. At 34 Todd Pannell can look forward to more success at the top level.

Our podcast guest this week is former outstanding Victorian jockey Steven King who quit the saddle two years ago.

Steve rode 54 Group 1 winners (44 in Australia), including his memorable Caulfield/Melbourne Cup double on Let’s Elope in 1991.

Nowadays Steve works full time for Lloyd Williams at Macedon Lodge and closely monitors the career of his son Lachlan King. Steve’s in reminiscent mood in this two part interview.
