Richard Johnson Picks Up 100th Winner Of The Season

The three time champion jump jockey Richard Johnson yesterday picked up his 100th win of the season for the 23rd consecutive time in his career.

At the racecourse where Johnson picked up his first ever win and his local track at Hereford was the setting for him to bring up his ton for the season on board the temperamental Arty Campbell.

Just last month the jockey took his career wins to over 3,500 and in the equestrianprojects.co.uk Handicap Hurdle on Tuesday hit another credible milestone in a season that just keeps on giving for the Englishman.

To get his 100th winner however it was not straight forward as the champion jockey had to steer his ride back into facing the fences after the Bernard Llewellyn trained eight year old tried to miss out the final hurdle after just touching off in the lead after the penultimate flight.

Johnson managed to get the horse back on track and rally gamely to get up and win by just under four lengths and land the win on the 11/4 favourite

(Credit At The Races) Richard Johnson said: "He was travelling so well I thought turning in, I’d let him bowl along. He had a good look but as soon as the other horse came to him, picked up well again.

“It’s fantastic to get to 100 again, especially here at Hereford. There’s a lot of people I know here today and my mum and dad are here. It’s nice they’ve come for a day out.”

The Herefordshire born jockey is on course to pick up his fourth consecutive champion jockey after making up substantial ground on Harry Skelton after his frequent winners in the summer to now lead.
