Marshall, Joseph (1908 - 1973)

Jockey (J)

Associated Places:  Brighton


It was Joe Marshall's lucky day in 1929 when, a few days before the Derby, the intended jockey for Trigo asked to be released from the mount, whereupon trainer Richard Dawson requested the services of the 20 year old who was still apprenticed to Stanley Wootton. The rest is history. Trigo won as he liked, and although Marshall was never legged up on Trigo for future victories, he attracted attention and a new job in Chantilly.

The bright beginning and the French position did not last, and apart from two victories in the Ayr Gold Cup, big prizes eluded him. He was riding under both codes in the 1950s but his career in the saddle was ended when the stewards withdrew his licence when he admitted to having bets on horseracing. Joe Marshall died in his home town, Brighton, at the age of 65.
