The inspiring story of one of the greatest jockeys ever whose legacy lives on.

Champion Zusammenfassung

Champion: A Memoir Pat Smullen

Pat Smullen was one of the greatest Irish jockeys ever. In a career laden with success, his position as one of the best Irish flat jockeys ever was long established, yet he never felt that he had arrived. Despite being a nine-time champion jockey, there was a humility about him that defined him.

It was this strength of character that got him through when in March 2018, Pat was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. There was never any self-pity. He just dealt with it. More than just dealing with it, he brought it centre stage, raised funds and awareness, and channelled his energies into helping others. He was a champion in all aspects of life, no matter what setbacks were thrown at him. Pat was one of life's givers, and he majored in giving that most precious of commodities: time. Tragically his own time was cut short far too early in September 2020.

Assisted by Donn McClean and completed by Pat's wife Frances, Champion is his story.

'From incredible highs to devastating lows, the championship battles and mental turmoil, the Derby winners and cancer heartbreak, Pat has left more than a legacy. Read this and you will agree with me - he is iconic.' RUBY WALSH

'Pat tells his story with the same honesty and humility that defined him as a person. He was a remarkable man and his is a compelling story.' SIR ANTHONY MCCOY

'Pat was an amazing man, a man of dignity who went about life with a smile on his face. He is an example to all of us.' FRANKIE DETTORI

'Inspiring, heart-breaking and unforgettable.' BROUGH SCOTT
