Details

George Duffield is the senior rider in the weighing room. Born in 1946, he entered racing (earning 19/6 a week) in the early 1960s toward the end of an era dominated by the toughest of men and toughest of standards: trainers like Sam Armstrong and his own mentor Jack Waugh, and jockeys like the legendary Breasley and Piggott. George has also been associated with countless top-class horses, such as his 1992 Oaks and St Leger winner User Friendly and more recently the Eclipse hero Giant's Causeway and the dual Champion Stakes heroine Alborada. Finally, George has experience of racing all round the world, and not just the leading racing nations: in Jamaica he had bricks thrown at him during a race and in the paddock one day even found himself in the midst of a gunfight! A true son of Yorkshire, George has never been afraid to speak his mind or fight his corner, a trait that has led to some intriguing confrontations with authority.
