An iconic sportsman, not just a racing icon. Everyone knew who Lester Piggott was, racing fan or not. Won his first raced aged twelve! An old rogue, as tight as two coats of paint with his money, which landed him in jail for tax evasion. A genius and a larger than life character. My dad says my great-gran, who loved a bet, would always check what rides Lester had. That's how far back he went.
