GUESS STAR DOMINIC ELSWORTH JUMP JOCKEY BLOODHORSE LITERATE .
DOMINIC ELSWORTH partners MR MCGOLDRICK 14.11.1 trainer Mrs S Smith
for Richard Longley This afternoon in the 2.35 at Cheltenham the Victorchandler.com H’cap Chase.
Elsworth just back riding after injury in a heavy fall from Keepitsecret on August 28 2010 which put him in hospital for two days and left him with bruising on the brain.
Elsworth tells us: 'Because it was concussion, it was a fairly slow process. The brain is a very delicate thing, so just small steps, I'd struggle to ride a bike down the road because I have trouble with my balance, I couldn’t even run or exert myself. You have to wait for nature to take its course. The doctors said last August that it could take up to six months. It did give me the time to look around at other things, that whilst riding I don’t get time to do.
ELSWORTH tells us that he is not related to trainer DAVID ELSWORTH, OF DESERT ORCHID FAME. he says it would have been good if he was.

GUESS STAR MICK FITZGERALD BLOODHORSE LITERATE
Retired Professional Jump Jockey of the highest calibre, of world renown.
Mick joined trainer Richard Lister at the age of 16 from the pony riding circuit, a popular source of future aspiring top jockeys in Ireland.
He rode his first winner in Britain on Lover’s Secret at Ludlow on 11th December 1988 and since then he has booted home around 1,250 winners – 12 of them at the Cheltenham Festival and enabling him to be in the top six of all-time riders over fences.
A short spell riding for Jackie Retter in the 1991/92 season then saw Mick land a long-standing retainer with top Lambourn trainer Nicky Henderson and the partnership has proved very successful ever since.
In recent years, Fitzgerald established himself as one of the leading jockeys in Britain, particularly through his partnership with the brilliant Paul Nicholls trained chaser See More Business, on whom he won the King George VI Chase and the Cheltenham Gold Cup in 1999.
That year’s Cheltenham Festival was a bumper year for Mick where he took the Gold Cup, Triumph Hurdle on Katarino, the two mile Queen Mother Champion Chase on Call Equiname, and the Cathcart Chase on Stormyfairweather.
Mick has now retired following a serious injury to his neck, but continues to work actively in racing and as a pundit for satellite racing channel Attheraces.

PAUSE FOR THOUGHT
JOHN OAKSEY BLOODHORSE LITERATE
The Noble Lord rode as an amateur from 1955 to 1975, taking the amateur jockeys' title over jumps in the 1957-58 and 1970-71 seasons. He was narrowly beaten second to Ayala in the 1963 Grand National on Carrickbeg, and won the 1958 Whitbread and Hennessy Gold Cups on Taxidermist.
How did you get into racing?
As a child my family were very keen on racing and I was taken to Cheltenham races frequently when I was very young, not long after the time of Golden Miller. I have ridden all of my life and hunted. I was training to be a barrister and my first winner came in a race confined to the legal profession, known as the BAR Point-to-Point. I rode a horse called Next Of Kin.
I also rode out for Bob Turnell near Marlborough and got more and more hooked on racing and so instead of being a barrister I decided to become a racing correspondent; my first job was with the Daily Telegraph where I wrote as "Marlborough" (this pen-name was due to me always reversing the charges from Marlborough to the office). In 1958 my riding career took off when I rode Taxidermist and won the Whitbread Gold Cup, in the November of the same year we also won the Hennessy which was run at Cheltenham.
What was your childhood ambition?
To be really good at one of several sports.
When did you join Channel 4 Racing?
I joined ITV in 1970.
Do you prefer flat or jumping?
Jumping: Far more fun and much nicer people.
Who or what has inspired or influenced you professionally?
Who do you most admire - all time?
1st Duke of Wellington.
What is your most memorable moment?
The 1971 Whitbread Gold Cup when I was disqualified. I was riding Proud Tarquin and he ducked towards The Dikler in the run-in, it was a tough finish and the horses fought it out head to head. I won by a head but was disqualified and felt this was very unfair at the time.
What is your most favourite horse?
Tuscan Prince won 13 races, five or six when I was aboard. When he retired, his owner, Sir John Thomson gave "Tusky" to me. My daughter used him as a schoolmaster in point-to-points and he was the safest jumper. We also team chased him, but he would only go well if my wife's mare was in the lead.
What is your best piece of advice for anyone wanting to make betting pay?
Never expect to make it pay because you probably won't. If you do bet, keep the stakes small and don't chase your losses.
If you could change one thing in racing, what would it be?
I would change the Levy Board's bias towards flat racing prize money from 60-40 in favour, to 60-40 in favour of jump racing.
Do you have any tips for anyone wanting to get into the racing or broadcasting industry?
Get involved in some way, ie. ride, go racing, work in a yard. Give yourself some connection that you can relate to.
What is your most memorable bet?
Cautious at Chepstow the price was 6/1.
What is your favourite sport other than racing?
What is your greatest sporting achievement outside of racing?
I was run out by Denis Compton, stumped by Godfrey Evans and I hit J J Warr for a six.
What is your most embarrassing moment?
We had tipped a horse to win at Warwick and it came to a photo finish. When the result was announced it had been beaten and I didn't realise my microphone was on and I said "Oh Bugger" on air!
Do you surf the internet?
Which School/University did you go to?
I went to Eton and then on to Yale, where I learnt to ski and had a lovely time.
What is your greatest achievement?
Helping to start the Injured Jockeys' Fund.
Do you have any pets?
Yes, three dogs and one aged cat.
What is your favourite pastime?
Walking the dogs.
Do you have any superstitions?
Yes. I say good morning to magpies, don't walk under ladders and refuse to sit down thirteen to a table. Don't much like the colour green.
What is the biggest lie you have ever told?
Difficult question, I tell them all the time!
Do you have any pet hates?
Designer stuble, dog fights and people who are rude to waiters.
