I seem to remember him riding one of my favourites when a youngster.

Giant mare Sailing Home by Dogger Bank out of Chocolate. Trained by Joyce Edgar-Jones.

Interestingly the dam Chocolate was a twin and too small to race but produced this very large mare.

She was a bloody beaut. I have a feeling Lester Piggott rode her in an International race at Te Rapa in the 70s but may be wrong on that one.
