Jarvis and Robinson

The old firm here! Jockey Philip Robinson in the silks of Sheikh Ahmed Al Maktoum, the 'in-house' jockey for Michael Jarvis, master of Kremlin house Newmarket. Michael Jarvis has been training horses over 40 years. He's won nearly every major race including the Prix d'Arc Triomphe 1989, the Italian Derby and the Topkapi Cup in Istanbul the other year!
Here's jockey with trainer on a cold April day, patiently waiting to mount some exciting 2 year old prospect, early in the Flat season 2009. Had a big thing about following Jarvis' stable; if you want a high-strike rate and quality winners, he's the man.
