Episode 115: Tappy chats with Danny Brereton (Part 2)

In part two Dan pays tribute to the wonderful trainers who helped him along the way.

He reflects on very successful riding stints in Hong Kong and Macau. He was the first Australian Club Jockey to be appointed by the Hong Kong Jockey Club.

He talks of some of the very good horses he got to ride in Melbourne including his Blue Diamond winner Knowledge.

Towards the end of the podcast he confesses that he has actually been on a horse’s back in the last couple of years. Silly thing to do perhaps, but he loved it!

We enjoyed the chat with a remarkable bloke and I’m pretty sure Danny enjoyed it too.
