In part 2 Michael pays tribute to two great horses sent to Australia by Sheikh Hamdan.
He reflects on his association with At Talaq - a Melbourne Cup winner who could sprint like an Everest horse.
He recalls the brilliant but unsound Almaarad, one of his two Cox Plate winners.
Michael remembers his idol, the late Roy Higgins who was always willing to give younger riders a helping hand.
I hope you enjoy a long overdue chat with a jockey who left an indelible mark on Australian racing.
