Call to the Post: Johnny Longden’s Glories and Goofs
JOHNNY LONGDEN was the world’s winningest jockey for fourteen years. In his 40 years of riding, the JACQUES STABLE was the only one that Johnny ever signed a jockey contract with.
From coalmine rags, as a “grease monkey,” Johnny went on to become one of the world’s richest athletes.
His many glories such as: winning the Triple Crown; being the only person to train as well as ride a Kentucky Derby winner; and riding a stakes winner in his final “CALL TO THE POST.”
He also made some goofs that consisted of: needlessly cutting down horses; pulling an ace horse; and financially arranging for a bookie and an American to claim my dad’s aging champion racehorse.
This NEW RELEASE is a TRUE STORY and GOOD READING about a HALL OF FAMER who was ENGLISH BORN, CANADIAN RAISED to become an AMERICAN CITIZEN.
