Epsom Derby Top Jockeys

(© John W Slusar 2020)

Constructing a list of the 'Top Epsom Derby jockeys' has to be more than a single person's subjective judgement, and should be arrived at by taking account of all available evidence and applying some pre-determined formula to give the data order. Therefore, the 2 challenges are:-

  1. Collecting all the evidence;
  2. Proposing a suitable formula.

Prior to 1824 Racing Calendars and newspapers of the day did not always record the name of the winning rider, and provided scant detail about which other riders took part. From the very first Derby in 1780, through to about 1816, there is a general acceptance of who rode each winner, but few further details. Between 1817 and 1823 it is possible to make a reasonably accurate guess about which jockey rode each horse, either because jockeys were linked to particular owners, or because a jockey had ridden a horse in each of its previous races.
Once all research has been concluded, and as detailed a list of all riders has been arrived at, the second challenge is to propose a formula which generates an order, giving suitable weight to such factors as, the number of times each jockey rode in the race, and the number of times he won the race or was placed. In this instance, 10 points has been awarded for each win, 6 points for each second place, 2 points for each third place, and a single point for each separate ride.
Whilst it is not necessary for the reader to contact the author of this list to discuss the merits, or otherwise, of the formula employed, the author would welcome contact from anyone who can provide further evidence of which riders took part between 1780 and 1822. (email johnwslusar@gmail.com)
