True Colours

Barry Geraghty is one of the greatest jockeys of all time. From his first win in 1997 he went on to ride almost 2,000 winners, include Monty’s Pass at 2003’s English Grand National. He was the first jockey to win ‘the big four’ races at Cheltenham and the English Grand National and in 2020 he own five races at Cheltenham, announcing his retirement on a high. But Barry is covered in scars. He has broken all his limbs, his shoulders, his ribs and his nose. And yet, he kept getting back on the horse. This book is about resilience; the mental power that enables the great to keep going despite the pain, despite the odds.
