Gardner, Edward Victor ( - )

Jockey (J)

Associated Places:  Marlborough, Wilts

Description:

Edward Gardner was first jockey to Lord Derby until half way through the season of 1923 when his failure to win the Derby on Pharos and Oaks on Tranquil meant that the Earl dispensed with his services. He was later retained by trainer Henry Blagrave.

Edward Gardner served in the European War in the motor transport division. He rode in Ireland in the 1930s, winning the Irish 1000 Guineas and Oaks on Smokeless and the Irish St Leger on Hill Song in 1936, in which year he was Champion Jockey there. He retired to Wiltshire where his hobbies were golf and lawn tennis.
