Harwood achieved his first license to train under National Hunt Rules in 1966. Previously assistant to Bryan Marshall. A very talented rider in his youth, he had many highly successful top Point to Point horses, and was always very difficult to beat. He achieved 14 winners under NH Rules.
Harwood retained the jockey Greville Starkey born on December 21 1939, who died earlier this year. Starkey rode his first winner at Pontefract on Russian Gold in 1955. And served his Apprenticeship with Harry Thompson Jones in Newmarket. Harwood and Starkey won many, many top races with some wonderful horses, Dancing Brave amongst them. A lovely name for a horse Dancing Brave. It could be said that Starkey and Dancing Brave danced together winning many top races.
