It was win number 4,000 ... what a fitting name for a horse to herald the pinnacle of a great riding career.

Yes ... time means nothing to me ... and I'm deaf too   :lol:

NB: I am a fast learner where making $$ is concerned ... eg FF's lately!

They say ... fast women and slow horses will get you all the time!
So yes ... I takes me time  :yes:

Oh I missed it!   :bash:

Well, you cannot be everywhere on one race day!   :no:

Did anyone make a fuss of him?  Did he speak on Sky?  If not, why not!   

An Australian record.....4,000 winners   WOW!    .. :clap2: :clap2: :clap2: :no1: :no1: :no1:

There was an extensive "interview" with Gary Harley which Sky World played after the races yesterday.
It was very good and Robert as usual came across as a terrific person.

I have read a couple of the stories about Thommo, but one thing is missing ... the sheer enormity of his average.

For example - how many winners in a year does the annual Premier jockey need, to be the Premier Jockey in respective states/provinces?
I haven't looked too far back, but if someone could find a table that shows the listings of premier jockeys over the years, I'd be grateful.

In recent lists, Robert had averaged a S/R around 18%, and is usually in the top 6 for the year - particularly country of course.
He doesn't appear in many metro lists, because it measures numerical wins, not S/R.
But if Thompson comes to town to ride, you'd better not discount his mount. If he has just the one ride ... it'll usually be for the win.
I doubt there would be many trainers who would pass up having him ride for them when their horse is peaking.

Effectively, in his career he has achieved the equivalent of riding into the premiership top half dozen list, every year for 40 years!!
Outstanding and unbelievable really.

Robert Thompson - you've seen 'em all come and go, mate - from:
Kevin Langby,
Malcolm Johnston,
Peter Cook
Mick Dittman,
Roy Higgins,
George Moore,
Larry Olsen,
Harry White ... and when making such a list, the danger is in leaving out more good ones than you include.

I'd be happy to put Robert Thompson up there alongside the greats, if for no other reason that his consistent record.

Well done Thommo!
