Also Known As:  Fred Pratt

Description:

Frederick Pratt, a nephew of the great jockey Frederick Archer, was apprenticed to James Ryan at Newmarket and won the 1000 Guineas on Mr Cox's Galeottia in 1895. He rode in Austria for a time and then, at the end of 1902 became private trainer for James de Rothschild.

One of their first good horses was Beppo, who, when mated with Galeottia produced Gay Laura, dam of Mr Cox's Triple Crown winner Gay Crusader.

Fred Pratt helped his employer, a fearless gambler, bring off some well planned coups, including Brigand at 25/1 in the Cambridgeshire.
