Jockey (J)

Associated Places:  Phantom House, Newmarket

Description:

Walter Bradford was born in Newmarket and was apprenticed to Tom Jennings Jnr at Phantom House. In a relatively short career as a jockey (he became too heavy to continue in 1899) he won four fillies' Classics, got a third place in the Derby, and his handicap wins included the Lincolnshire, City and Suburban, Cambridgeshire and Cesarewitch.

Walter Bradford was keenly interested in all turf matters up to the time of his death in his Newmarket home in Wood Ditton in 1942. His other hobbies were gardening and motoring.
