Fallen Jockeys Memorial Print Page
The jockey in the memorial in a sense anonymous, is based on famed rider Hughie Cairns who was killed in a hurdle race at Moonee Valley in 1929.
Australian Jockeys are elite athletes who quite literally place their lives on the line every time they compete in a race. Sadly, serious injuries are a frequent occurrence and over 800 riders have lost their lives since racing first began.
