For several seasons Jack Hamey has been prominent as a rider under National Hunt rules. His greatest triumph came in the Grand National of 1932 when a field of thirty-two runners, he rode the seven year old Forbra to victory in the late Mr. W. Parsonage’s colours.
Hamey is equally at home in hurdle and steeplechase events, and in long distance races can always be relied upon to get the best out of his mounts. He was seen to great advantage at the Gatwick January meeting, 1935, when he won three races in succession.
