10. Childs, Joseph (1884 - 1958)

Childs was a great exponent of winning races with a well-timed rush and so it went completely against the grain to ride Coronach in the 1926 Derby at a flat-out pace from start to finish. "The bastard ran away with me" was his post-race quote.  Laugh

In all, he achieved 15 Classic wins.

Saviour - Charlie Smirke is correct.

We now have 4 of the 6 jockeys featured in the old slot machine found in 70s amusement arcades.

Scobie Breasley, Charlie Smirke, Lester Piggott and Doug Smith.

Anyone remember the final two?

The machine was a huge round dome where the horses went round the track. One put a penny on one`s choice and got paid out at various odds if correctly picking the winner. Does anybody else remember this huge contraption? I wish I could get my hands on one for my games room Crazy
