Timing is Everything

I once met up with a famous New Zealand/Australian jockey Greg Childs who retired
in 2008 and had over 2100 wins to his name. I didn’t really know too much about him at the time but had heard of his name.

Anyway we were having a chat at a cafe and I asked him what makes a good jockey and he answered simply by saying “timing”.

Well, when you think about it, that probably sums up just about everything in life.
TIMING, all I have to do now is learn how to understand and master it.

  • Get to know theĀ horse (vehicle)
  • My horse’s trainer
  • The competition (horses, riders and trainers)
  • The conditions
  • The track

Once again I guess it all comes down to preparation first and knowing my industry to get my timing down pat.
