Sam Morshead is the first leading professional jockey to have become an acclaimed racecourse manager. Now, with an engaging, unsophisticated charm he takes you directly into a horse mad childhood and everything that brought. Sam was born and brought up in Ireland to Cornish parents. He began riding before school age and his talent was evident. Just 17 when riding over fences for the first time, he was hooked. A move to England brought over 400 winners, down largely to his defining role as first jockey to elite trainer Fred Rimell. A series of head injuries ended his riding days but he soon reinvented himself in Scotland as clerk of the course at Perth and when ill health forced him to step down last summer he was swamped with tributes. Anxious to tell his story and equipped with a wealth of knowledge and innate passion built up over almost 40 years in horse racing, Sam Morshead provides a colourful, sometimes poignant, glimpse into a life well lived.
