Steve Cauthen commenced his 14-year ‘English Odyssey’ in April 1979. The erstwhile ‘Kentucky Kid’ had taken American racing by storm, but the teenage prodigy’s slump of 110 consecutive losers saw him cross the Atlantic seeking to resurrect his career. He went on to become the only jockey to win both the Derby and the Kentucky Derby (plus those of Ireland, France and Italy), to be the most recent jockey to win an English Triple Crown courtesy of Oh So Sharp in 1985, and secure three jockeys’ championships – making him the only man to win titles in both America and England. A complete study of the American prodigy who took the UK by storm.
