It's just amazing. You can't put words to it, but the man is fantastic. He's a fantastic man and a fantastic jockey.

Old horses, young horses, monkeys. You name it, he can win on it, that's the fantastic thing about him - it doesn't matter what it is he just wants to ride winners.

I can't finds words to describe the fella. I'm just so pleased to have him.
