If RT wasn't so devoted and in love with living in the Hunter Valley and had moved to Sydney in his early 20's he would have been held in the same way as George Moore, Mick Dittman and Darren Beadman.
RT first and foremost is a champion horseman and then a champion jockey.
RT isn't a "manufactured" jockey he is a professional horseman.
Hugh Bowman is another professional horseman and it also shows with his ability.
It will be a sad day when RT retires but what a great career.
We all wish that RT's mum is home and well for Christmas.
