His career ending fall was in the 2008 Grand National. He has since become a familiar face on our TV screens working for Channel 4 then ITV Racing as well as At The Races and Sky Sports Racing. In this interview he talks frankly and in places emotionally about the state of racing today and his riding career.
In Part 4, Mick talks about how things are for jockeys these days and how he enjoys the jockey coaching especially the mentoring, how jockeys beat themselves up. How the brotherhood of jockeys in jump racing is something special, getting a few bevvies in with the Queen Mother, the Grand National, giving Altior a retirement home and his hopes for the future.
