Jeff Lloyd could be considered an active living legend, with four decades of experience in the saddle and over 4,000 wins to his credit. Lloyd is proving himself to be ever green, at 55 he is riding better than ever and showing the younger generation how it's done.
The UK Born, South African raised jockey recently added yet another accomplishment to his world class resume . Lloyd equalled Chris Munce's record of 103 for the most winners by a rider, in the Queensland metropolitan season two weeks ago, but picked up a three - meeting suspension aboard Houtzen in the Golden Slipper.
Jeff Lloyd is a man of action and wasted absolutely no time whatsoever in breaking the record, he led from gun to tape on the Desleigh Forster trained Sun Deck, beating favourite Nashville Skyline in a two year old handicap over 1400m.
With three months left in the season Lloyd, should in all likelihood post a tally of wins that will be very hard to oppose in the future.
