You say Legends race, I say completely pointless gimmick race of the sort common in racing but alien to other sports. You won't see the Chelsea 2010 Premier League-winning side taking on the 2004 Arsenal team, for instance, or a Formula One race limited to grey cars. Bah humbug.

And who are these legends of the sport? The biggest stars are Barry Geraghty and Richard Johnson, but they were jump jockeys, not Flat. Were Dale Irving, Dave Crosse and Gary Bardwell legends outside their own kitchens, or even inside?

They'll be racing in teams next.

The best legends race I ever saw on a racecourse, bar none, was a match between Francome and Lord Oaksey.  Two out and absolutely cruising Francome ranged up alongside Oaksey, leaned over and grabbed his crown jewels before racing away to win by ten!  Bl**dy brilliant it was.  Laugh

tony6499, I had a share in Classified who beat PC on Long Wharf that day at Plumpton. Photo of it at home. I was working in the desert in UAE at the time. Only telex if you were lucky. First I knew about the race was seeing the picture on front page of the Times when it arrived in our bar 2 days later. Big price ours that day. Not a word to me about it running :-(

blimey, all these ex-jockeys who end up being Godolphin work riders. They must pay well.

It seems there are now two career paths for ex-jockeys, Godolphin work rider or RTV pundit Wink

Godolphin pay is ok but these x Jockeys still have a string of punters to keep happy.Wink
Report Ramruma September 8, 2021 2:50 PM BST
Re OP. Rather than Robert Winston, I'd say the best Flat jockey riding here is Sammy Jo Bell. The market suggests she is not on the best horsey. Winston was a known quantity, whereas SJB was imo still on an upward curve when packing it in.

I think you will find it was the late commentator Robin Grey that was 'touched up' by Francome
