A natural on a horse since he was able to walk and imbued with a pure love of riding, Declan Murphy became one of the most brilliant jockeys of his generation before his world came crashing down at the final hurdle of a race at Haydock Park.

Miraculously, and the word is not used lightly, he survived and defied medical thinking in recovering to the extent that 18 months after his fall he was able to saddle up for one more race.
