Murphy to coach riders at 'finishing school'
Thursday 11 January 1996
"It's a sort of finishing school," the Jockey Club's David Pipe, said. "It is aimed at jockeys who have reached a formative point in their career and will start with tuition on practical riding, which goes on to schooling for conditionals, taken by Declan Murphy and Yogi Breisner. There will also be training on a mechanical horse, and fitness training with the chief medical officer.
"Richard Pitman will hold classes on dealing with the press and public, while Declan Murphy and Paul Barton will cover race-riding.
"Andrew Barr and the Racing Post Spotlight team will deal with studying form and jockeys' agents will be covered, along with JETS, the Jockeys' Employment Training Scheme run by the Mellor family. An accountant will deal with what to do with winnings and presents in respect of tax."
