Date posted: 19 Jan 2022

Alongside one of the modern greats, Altior, Mick Fitzgerald talks through what it was liking starting out as young jockey back in the day and how it compares to the current younger members of the weighing room. He believes that jockeys in his day had it easier than those today due to the rigours and scrutinises that social media puts on them. He also has a few recommendations for those pilots who are struggling for regular winners.
