            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.
