This has got to be one of the spookiest threads of all time given the thread title, cuz just under 4 hours after the thread had been started, would be a ride that would result in a jockey receiving one of the heftiest disqualifications ever to be dished out for a non-jigger, particularly as I think I'm right in saying there was no evidence of the connections having laid the horse.

The ride was referred to twice on this thread at the time, though doubt anyone expected the jock to receive the punishment he did a couple of months later, and some jocks might have got off with 14 days for failing to take all permissable measures, however, the BHA disqualified Jason Behan for 3 years for his ride on Casela Park.

J Ben Hur Jerusalem?
Spencer on Hawk Wing always comes to mind,I blame him entirely for getting that horse a run in the derby which was painful viewing that wouldn't have happened had he won the Guineas and that shytehawk Ferguson wouldn't have mopped up all those easy mile G1's.

Just reading this thread, some of you mentioned George Mernagh, I remember him riding as an amateur on the point to point circuit before heading to England. He died about 5 years ago if memory serves.
As for Pat Leech, if I'm correct there were two Pat Leech's. One of them rode for Martin Pipe when he started training and won the Triumph Hurdle at Cheltenham 66/1. One of them may have spelt his name Leach but the guy who rode for Martin Pipe was not the fellow who rode for Noel Meade as far as I remember.
Hard to get info on Racing Post it only goes back so far and even at that I have come across jockeys and trainers who have namesakes and as a result their records are all contorted.

The jockey who rode Baron Blakeney in the Triumph was Paul Leach.  Jockeypedia is usually a good source for this kind of info but he is not mentioned (George hasn't got round to including everyone!!)  There is a John Leech on there who rode in the north of england and in Foinavons National.

Well Paul Leach was the jockey who rode for Baron Blakeney for Martin Pipe and may have been his stable jock for a while in the early days. He is not to be confused with Pat "Shorty" leech who rode for Noel Meade mentioned above.
John(ny) Leech was a jockey I remember back in the '60's way before the other lads.

Thats the one FF,remember sitting in a bar that day looking at the RP.My said "I wonder if that is Davey Jones the Monkee"  He remembered him being an apprentice,we had a bet but not until after the race did we realise it was he.

The Doctorate was honorary.
