Also Known As:  Frank Bullock

Description:

Frank Bullock had success all over the world, including in the German Derby, two Arc de Triomphes in France and the prestigious King Emperor's Cup in India. He was the complete all-round jockey, second to none in match races, and a sympathetic rider of two-year-olds.

Frank Bullock was born in Australia and won the Melbourne Cup there in 1905 before coming to England to ride for the American trainer Andrew Joyner. During the war he worked for Reginald Day for whom he won the Jockey Club Cup and the Cesarewitch on the great stayer Son-in-Law. He then had a retainer at Alec Taylor's Manton yard, where he had his best season in 1921. He was runner-up to Stephen Donoghue for the Jockey's Championship, winning the Eclipse Stakes on Craig an Eran. His Classic wins of 1925 were for Lord Waldorf Astor. He retired at the end of that year and trained in England, France and India.
