The secret of Lester Piggott

"Kindness. It's not a word you ever see associated with Lester Piggott but it is a rarely seen side of his character and also is the key to his riding style which made him a riding great."

Walter Swinburn has an excellent piece in the Daily Mail on the legendary jockey, whose phenomenal record will be celebrated this weekend, 50 years on from his first win in the 2,000 Guineas at Newmarket. If you're lucky enough to be at HQ today, you can meet the great man as he'll be signing books at the Marlborough Books stand on the Hyperion Lawn.
