'''Lester Keith Piggott''' (born 5 November 1935) is a retired [[England|English]] professional [[jockey]], popularly known as "The Long Fellow".<ref>[http://www.newmarketracecourses.co.uk/about/11751596123228.html About the Home of Racing]</ref><ref>[http://www.salisburyracecourse.co.uk/press/news25.html Lester Piggott to open New Wiltshire Stand at Salisbury]</ref> With 4,493 career wins, including nine [[Epsom Derby]] victories, he is widely regarded as one of the most greatest [[flat racing]] jockeys of all time.
 
 
==Family background and personal life==
 
Lester Piggott was born in [[Wantage]] to a family that could trace its roots as jockeys and trainers back to the 18th century.<ref name="PDavid">p45, David Boyd, A Bibliographical Dictionary of Racehorse Trainers in Berkshire 1850–1939 (1998)</ref> The Piggotts were a Cheshire farming family who in the 1870s ran the [[Crown Hotel, Nantwich|Crown Inn]] in [[Nantwich]] for at least 40 years. Lester's grandfather [[Ernest Piggott|Ernest (Ernie) Piggott]] (1878–1967) owned a racehorse stable at The Old Manor in Letcombe Regis and his father (Ernest) Keith Piggott (1904–1993) another at South Bank in [[Lambourn]], where Lester lived until 1954.<ref name="PDavid" /> Ernie Piggott rode three [[Grand National]] winners, in 1912, 1918 and 1919 and was married to a sister of the jockeys [[Mornington Cannon]] and [[Kempton Cannon]], who both rode winners of the Derby, in 1899 and 1904 respectively. He was also three-times [[British jump racing Champion Jockey]] (in 1910, 1913 and 1915). Keith Piggott was a successful National Hunt jockey and trainer, winning the [[Champion Hurdle]] as a jockey in 1939 and the [[Grand National]] as a trainer in 1963 with Ayala, becoming the [[British jump racing Champion Trainer]] of the 1962–63 season. Lester Piggott is the cousin, through his mother Lilian Iris Rickaby, of two other jockeys, Bill and Fred Rickaby. Fred Rickaby was [[British flat racing Champion Apprentice]] in 1931 and 1932.
 
 
Piggott is married to Susan Armstrong. They married at St. Mark's church, North Audley Street, London in 1960. Her father, Sam Armstrong, and her brother, Robert Armstrong, were both racehorse trainers. They have two daughters, Maureen, an ex-[[eventing|eventer]] (married to Derby-winning trainer [[William Haggas]]) and [[Tracy Piggott|Tracy]] (a sports presenter on Irish television station [[Radio Telefís Éireann|RTÉ]]). He also has a son, Jamie, from a relationship with Anna Ludlow.<ref>[http://observer.guardian.co.uk/osm/story/0,6903,481543,00.html Observer interview 2001]</ref> His house is named after a famous racehorse from history—[[Florizel]].
 
 
==Career as a jockey==
 
 
Piggott began racing horses from his father's stable when he was 10 years old and won his first race in 1948, aged 12 years, on a horse called The Chase at [[Haydock Park Racecourse|Haydock Park]]. A teenage sensation, he rode his first winner of the [[Epsom Derby]] on [[Never Say Die (horse)|Never Say Die]] in 1954 aged 18 years and went on to win eight more, on [[Crepello]] (1957), [[St. Paddy]] (1960), [[Sir Ivor]] (1968), [[Nijinsky II|Nijinsky]] (1970), [[Roberto (horse)|Roberto]] (1972), [[Empery]] (1976), [[The Minstrel]] (1977) and [[Teenoso]] (1983). He was stable jockey to [[Noel Murless]] and later to [[Vincent O'Brien]] and had a glittering career of unparalleled success. Known as the "housewives' favorite", Piggott had legions of followers and did much to expand the popularity of [[horse racing]] beyond its narrow, class-based origins.
 
 
Famously tall for a jockey (5&nbsp;ft 8 in/1.73 m), hence his nickname of "The Long Fellow", Lester Piggott struggled to keep his weight down and for most of his career rode at little more than 8 stone (112&nbsp;lb/51&nbsp;kg). He pioneered a new style of race-riding that was subsequently widely adopted by colleagues at home and abroad and enabled him to become [[British flat racing Champion Jockey|Champion Jockey]] eleven times.
 
 
In 1980 his relationship with the [[Robert Sangster|Sangster]]&ndash;[[Vincent O'Brien|O'Brien]] combination came to an end and he was appointed as stable jockey to Noel Murless's son-in-law [[Henry Cecil]], the [[British flat racing Champion Trainer]], at Murless's old stables, Warren Place. He was again champion jockey in 1981 and 1982. However, as the result of a dispute in late 1983 as to whether he had reneged on an agreement to ride [[Daniel Wildenstein]]'s [[All Along]], Piggott's ride in the [[Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe]] went instead to [[Walter Swinburn]], with Wildenstein refusing to allow him to ride any more of his horses. It was costly for Piggott, as All Along won the Arc and a string of other international races in an autumn campaign that ended with her being named [[Eclipse Award for Horse of the Year|US Horse of the Year]]. Further, as Wildenstein was one of Cecil's principal owners, this placed a strain on the relationship, and in 1984 Cecil and Piggott split, with [[Steve Cauthen]] taking over at Warren Place.
 
 
Lester lives near [[Newmarket, Suffolk|Newmarket]] in [[Suffolk]], as do many other jockeys and trainers.
 
 
==Later career and conviction for tax evasion==
 
Piggott retired as a jockey at the end of the 1985 flat season and became a trainer. At its peak, his Eve Lodge stables housed 97 horses and sent out 34 winners. In 1987 he was convicted of [[tax fraud]] and jailed for three years, of which he served 366 days. The following year he was stripped of his [[Order of the British Empire|OBE]] (which he had been awarded in 1975) because of his conviction. Once released from jail, he resumed his career as a jockey in 1990 and won the [[Breeders' Cup Mile]] on [[Royal Academy (horse)|Royal Academy]] within ten days of his return. He rode another Classic winner, Rodrigo de Triano, in the 1992 [[2000 Guineas]]. His last win was in October 1994 and he officially retired, this time for good, in 1995. In 2004 he published the book ''Lester's Derbys''.<ref>http://www.amazon.ca/Lesters-Derbys-Lester-Piggott/dp/0413774112/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1336257698&sr=1-1</ref>
 
 
==Illness==
 
On Tuesday 15 May 2007 he was admitted to intensive care in a Swiss hospital following a recurrence of a previous heart problem. His wife stated that this illness is not life-threatening and that he was recovering in intensive care as a precaution. He attended [[Royal Ascot]] in June 2007<ref>{{cite news| url=http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/sport/racing/article1975333.ece | work=The Times | location=London | title=Piggott shows star quality in photofinish | date=23 June 2007 | accessdate=7 May 2010 | first1=Alan | last1=Lee}}</ref> and the Epsom Derby in June 2008 where he tipped the winner, New Approach, during a BBC television interview. He was also present for Gold Cup day at the Cheltenham Festival in March 2009, where he was interviewed in the parade ring.
 
 
==Recognition==
 
The annual jockey awards [[Lester Award|The Lesters]], inaugurated in 1990, are named in his honour.

==In popular culture==
 
The British music band [[James (band)|James]] recorded a song named "Sometimes (Lester Piggott)" on their album ''[[Laid]]''. It has a beat which is like a horse galloping. The outro on the original 12" of [[Sit Down (James song)|Sit Down]] also featured a falsetto voice singing the jockey's name.
 
 
The Hope and Anchor pub in Margate, Kent has been restyled with a horse racing theme and renamed Lester's after the famous jockey.
 
 
The [[Van Morrison]] song "In the Days Before Rock 'n Roll" also mentions Piggott by name: "When we let, then we bet / On Lester Piggott when we met [ten to one] / And we let the goldfish go"
 
 
In 1992, the [[Queen regnant|Queen]] agreed, under pressure, to pay taxes. The satirical magazine [[Private Eye]] showed a picture of her talking on a telephone, asking for Lester Piggott.<ref>[http://www.private-eye.co.uk/covers.php?showme=771 Private Eye cover, 5 July 1991]</ref>
 
 
One episode of the ITV series ''[[Cracker (UK TV series)|Cracker]]'' has DCI Wise advising Jimmy Beck (in trouble for beating a suspect) that "You're going on more courses than Lester bloody Piggott!"
 
 
One episode of the BBC Radio 4 comedy series "[[Ed Reardon's Week]]", Season 04, Episode 01, Title: "January The 31st", Ed tries to claim tax deductions for Almanac in his coffee as a professional writer's expense. The local Aylesbury tax official removes the alcohol deduction and mentions being taught two cases in training, the latter case being Lester Piggott.

You need targeted visitors for your website so why not get some for free? There is a VERY POWERFUL and POPULAR company out there who now lets you try their traffic service for 7 days free of charge. I am so glad they opened their traffic system back up to the public! Check it out here: http://posco.com.br/yourls/tny
