The Accelerators meet Darren Beadman
The Accelerators got to spend today with one of the greatest jockeys in Australia’s history, Darren Beadman.
Darren won 85 Group 1 races and was the youngest jockey ever to be inducted into the Australian Racing Hall of Fame. Darren spoke about his love of horses as the number one thing that drove his career and success, and his background growing up in Canberra riding from a young age. Darren also spoke about leaving home at 15 to become an apprentice to Theo Green, who was a mentor and second father to him.
Like Sam and Tommy, Darren spoke about the challenges life throws at you and how to dig deep to overcome them. It was inspiring to hear such a legend and a childhood hero to some of these riders, talk so openly about life and his love of horses.
Thank you DB, what a pleasure it was.
