Paul Leach, Jump Legends Charity Race raising money for the Bob Champion Cancer Trust
On Saturday 14th October 2017 at Chepstow Racecourse, Paul Leach lined up for the fifth running of the Jump Legends Charity Race to raise money for the Bob Champion Cancer Trust.
Paul ventured to Newmarket in 1970 aged 15 weighing 6st7lb with the ambition of being a flat jockey! This was very short lived and he returned to Devon to join David H Barons. Paul rode festival winners on King or Country at Cheltenham and Aintree and a Schweppes Gold Trophy on Bootlaces. After partnering Baron Blakeney to win the Triumph Hurdle in 1981 he then joined M C Pipe as stable jockey riding many winners on horses like Corporal Clinger, Cats Eyes and Right Regent. In all Paul rode nearly 300 winners and retired in 1987. Paul is now Stud Groom at Fonthill Stud.
