I saw the thread header , and started thinking. I thought of 5 - and they'd all already been mentioned, so I'll mention them again.

Starkey (obviously)
B Munro-Wilson
A Munro
B DeHaan
N Hawke.

I'd add Liam Treadwell and Marcus Armytage too.

OH Sugar!

Nope, close but no cigar. She shouted 'fooking hell' at the top of her voice as she went past the post. Was quite funny at the time.

Starkey came first to mind for me too. Interesting looking at the others.

The next one that came to mind for me was when Lester Piggott only out of retirement a wet week rode a magnificent race on Royal Acadamy to win the Breeders Cup Mile for Vincent O'Brien. What a race.

Arazi winning a 2 yr old Breeders Cup was pretty good too weaving through the field.

This is not what he'll be remembered for because he became one of the greatest NH trainers of all time, but this was, for example,  selected by Sean McGee as one of his 'Top 10' races of all time:

Fred Winter on Mandarin in the Grand Steeplechase de Paris when Mandarin's bit broke early in the race.

Pat ‘Shorty’ Leech started his racing career at the age of 12yrs, joining Noel Meade as an apprentice.  He became a professional National Hunt jockey at an early age and was lucky enough to finish second to the great Frank Berry (10 times Irish NH champion jockey) in the jockeys championship in 1983, whilst still an apprentice.
He was retained by Noel Meade from 1983 to 1997 and won over 20 flat races and 130 jump races.
Pat’s career highlights include riding a double at Ascot, being associated with the good horse, Ballincurra Lad, winning the Irish Independent Sportstar of the Year and being a three times member of the Irish Jockey’s team.
Since retiring from race riding, Pat has worked for several of the top trainers continuing to bring-on youngsters into full training or as a work rider. He has gained valuable experience in the UK, Ireland and the USA.
Before taking out his training licence he continued as a work rider, whilst also breaking and bringing on young horses ready to go into full training
At the age of 45, he had a brief return to race riding in 2007, riding in a couple of bumpers before finally hanging up his boots
In 2007, he also completed his trainer’s course at The British Racing School prior to taking out a combined licence in 2008.   Within the first couple of months of training he had trained three winners and several placed horses.
