At the tender age of 12, and with a rising reputation as horse-racing's boy prodigy, Lester Keith Piggott rode into the winner s enclosure for the first time. That was 33 years ago. Now his name ranks in racing's annals alongside the great jockeys of the turf: Fred Archer , Steve Donaghue and Sir Gordon Richards.
Piggott's successes are legendary: nine times Champion Jockey, he has won 23 Classics, including a record eight victories in the Derbv. There is, of course, another side to Piggott - the private face, the family man, the holidaymaker. What does a jet-setting jockey do when the English flat-racing season ends?
TOM CONTI narrates this personal account of a very personal man written by former Sports Writer of the Year, FRANK KEATING.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
