Kieren Fallon is the most successful Flat jockey of the modern era.
Yet controversy is never far away. He was charged with conspiracy to defraud in July 2006, a charge he strenuously denied.
In December 2007, he was cleared, but a day later it was revealed that he had again failed a drugs test while riding in France.
But there is a different side to Fallon, a man who never got on a racehorse until he was almost 18 and yet quickly developed a natural rapport with his horses that makes them respond to him like no other jockey.
Six times Champion Jockey, a seventh title was taken from his grasp when he had an horrific, career-threatening fall in June 2000.
He has won 15 Classics, including the Derby three times.
