Richard Johnson Claims 3,500th Winner At Warwick

Three time Champion Jumps Jockey Richard Johnson yesterday saddled his 3,500th winner in the second race of the day at Warwick on board the Tom lacey trained He's A Goer at 8/1.

Johnson has had an unbelievable 24 year National Hunt career with 3482 winners coming across the United Kingdom and the other 18 coming in Ireland.

The jockey for a long 16 consecutive years had to finish second fiddle to the outstanding A P McCoy for the Champion Jockey title but after the leading jockey retired Johnson stepped up and has now took a hat trick of titles.

Last years Cheltenham Gold Cup winner is now second behind Sir Anthony McCoy in the jumps jockey list, but still has a fair way to go to catch him up with just the 848 wins behind the great sportsman.

Dicky Johnson has had an illustrious career in the sport with having highs and lows. His biggest wins have come at Cheltenham where he has won the Gold Cup twice on board Looks Like Trouble in 2000 and this years winner Native River.

The veterans other big wins at the festival include wins in the Stayers Hurdle in 1999 and wins in the Champion Chase and Champion hurdle in 2002 and 2003.

The Englishman also sets other great records in the sport being joint again with A P McCoy for the most amount of rides in a Gran National Standing at 20. He is set to overtake McCoy next year after strangely not being given a ride in this years renewal of the steeplechase.

His best ever performance in the pinnacle of British Jump racing was in 2002 and 2014 where he finished second both times on board What's Up Boys and Balthazar king, with this race being one of the few big ones he hasn't got on his roster.

Yesterdays win gave the Champion Jockey his 78th of the campaign in his bid to make it four years in a row at the top. He is currently 1/2 to take the title again but it is tight at the top with Brian Hughes and Harry Skelton very much still in the running.
