Synopsis

Fallon: The Biography by Andrew Longmore

Kieren Fallon is the most successful Flat jockey of the modern era. Yet controversy is never far away. He was charged with conspiracy to defraud in July 2006, a charge he strenuously denied. In December 2007, he was cleared, but a day later it was revealed that he had again failed a drugs test while riding in France. But there is a different side to Fallon, a man who never got on a racehorse until he was almost 18 and yet quickly developed a natural rapport with his horses that makes them respond to him like no other jockey. Six times Champion Jockey, a seventh title was taken from his grasp when he had an horrific, career-threatening fall in June 2000. He has won 15 Classics, including the Derby three times.
