About this programme

A look at the career of Lester Piggott, the former jockey who had 4,493 wins, including nine Epsom Derby victories, the first of which was when he was 18 years old. Piggott initially retired at the end of the 1985 flat racing season and became a trainer, but returned as a jockey in 1990 and went on to ride for another five years.
