Birth: Jan. 11, 1857
Death: Nov. 8, 1886

A jockey who boasted a remarkable record of riding 2748 winners from 8084 rides between 1869 and 1886. During this period he was champion jockey for thirteen consecutive years from 1874 to 1886. His father was a steeplechase jockey and Fred followed in his father's footsteps. Unfounded suggestions that he had pulled certain horses, and the pressure of remaining at the top of his profession, may have contributed to his suicide. However, the loss of his first child and then his wife during the birth of their second child must have been a major factor.
