Great to welcome Allan Denham to the podcast.
His trademark humour is ever-present as he looks back on his time as an apprentice jockey. His friends thought he’d last five minutes. He hung in there for seven years, riding 400 winners and winning an apprentices premiership.
He talks about “life with Jack” and the difficulties of living in the shadow of the legendary trainer.
He pays tribute to some of his father’s owners who have stuck solid since Jack’s passing in 2009.
He fondly recalls some of the top horses he got to ride and train.
