Dave Roberts: Life as a jockeys’ agent

A fascinating little interview – Luke Harvey bumps into jockeys’ agent supremo Dave Roberts at Fontwell in June 2017 about what life is like as a jockeys’ agent – the hours, what a day entails and what the key characteristic is in spotting future stars in the saddle.

Roberts currently has 57 – yes, 57! – jockeys on his books and has masterminded the careers of some greats in the saddle, most notably AP McCoy but also current two-time champion Richard Johnson as well as the likes of Mick Fitzgerald and Richard Dunwoody.
