One of the Best Workriders i have ever seen.

I worked with him when he first arrived at Dickie's after Sir Gordon packed up and used to babysit his kids. Thoroughly nice lad and a good rider. Boldboy was a bit of a nutter that's for sure but he was really classy as well.

I think Freddy Fairbrass would have something to say about that Acey. He was a workrider so I didn't see him on many of the odd ones.

Ideal jockey to give an inexperienced 2YO its first racecourse putting and I don't mean that in any bad way - just would be considerate for the future soft hand approach

Was a great judge at home a lot of Herns good ones went in first time out,keeping the Beaverbrook theme when Unfuwain made his debut at Newbury it had beaten a previous winner on the gallops easily so was a hot favourite to win its maiden,unfortunately Procter on Minster son got up and beat him.
Lady B's mostly had 7 letters Niniski,Charmer,Petoski and Minster son some of her better horses,she fell out with the Major and moved most of her string to Clive Britain with whom she had Mystico.
Brian Procter moved to work for Godolphin and his son Tony rode Dubai Millennium at home.

It was Michael Jarvis who trained Totowah and 1982 Coronation Cup winner Easter Sun among others for Lady Beaverbrook.
