Jockey (J)

Description:

Fred Rickaby, grandson of J Rickaby (the trainer of the 1855 Derby winner Wild Dayrell), took out his licence in 1885. He held positions as stable jockey for Mat Dawson and Hon George Lambton, who described the rider as the soundest and most hard-working jockey he ever had. His daughter, Iris, became the mother of Lester Piggott, and his son, Frederick (born 1894) stepped into his father's boots in 1912 when he became first jockey at Stanley House.

Important successes:
