Special visitors to the National Horseracing Museum
Friday 25th March 2011
Legendary American jockey Ray York dropped in to the Museum and created a real buzz of interest.
Ray was the first (and surely only) jockey to have raced in seven decades. Yes, that's right seven decades! 1949 to 2001. He won over 3,000 races and the 1954 Kentucky Derby on Determine.

Here he is (on the left) in the Museum's Practical Gallery with our own life long racing veteran and staff member, Mick Carty.
