Barry Geraghty is the best jump jockey thread

Better than Ruby, better than McCoy, better than Choc…better than all of them.

Gave an awesome display today on Sprinter Sacre in the Tingle Creek Chase at Sandown.

He is one of the most unassuming and pleasant sportsmen you’ll ever meet, as well as being the bravest and most gifted jockey of our time.

Anybody, myself included, would have won on Sprinter today.

Geraghty is good. Walsh is better. AP is the best

What makes him better than the others?
The horse won the race, some other fella trained or in this case more than likely drugged it.
Saying one of these over paid midgets is better than the other as they get paid to sit on different typs of horses and “win” more than the other fella is a bit juvenile really isnt it?

animal cruelty is not a sport

The injuries have fucked Ruby. McCoy was always more at home at Market Rasen than Cheltenham.
BG will have Sprinter Sacre, Bobs Worth, Simonsig, Oscar Whiskey, Granduoet, Riverside Theatre, Finians Rainbow going for him this season. Nice work if you can get it.

seriously, have you ever sat on a thoroughbred horse? especially a horse travelling at 30mph over fences? do you really think that is an easy way to earn a living?

have you ever sat on one of these?
will you ever get real, in the UK and ireland there are 2 or 3 trainers with another 4 or 5 jockeys who are completely ahead of the rest and have all the best horses and are in cahoots with a few millionaires who just completely dominate the sport,
how anyone can say that one jockey is better than the next when they are riding horses of different ability is ridiculous.
I wonder how would one of these superheros like geraghty or walsh look if he was asked to ride some 50-1 yoke in a beginners chase in Navan today that was merely going thru the last motions of his racing career before been put down and sold for meat and tailed in last? what would happen if the fella who was usually riding donkeys in navan was allowed ride all of the top class horses in big races that geraghty will get in the next few months and won today on some more clearly better bread, trained or in henderson’s case drugged horse ?
