Friday Flashback Malcolm Johnston_John Tapp Racing.jpg

Wonder what Malcolm Johnston was thinking about when Ern McQuillan snapped this one. Hard to tell if he’s thinking about his next ride, or his last.

Few more popular jockeys ever rode in Australia, and few ever put more back into racing.

Two thousand winners and thirty nine Gr 1’s, are ample testimony to his talents, while his irrepressible personality endeared him to all sections of the racing industry.

It’s always a delight to stumble upon an old photo of Miracle Mal.
