Also Signed by Lester Piggott Famous Jockey. Lester Piggott was the greatest English jockey of all time. He rode his first winner at age 12 in 1948, was a champion jockey in England 11 times and won the nation's most prestigious flat race, the Derby, a record nine times between 1954 and 1983. Some of the horses he rode to victory include legends of the Turf such as Nijinsky, Sir Ivor, The Minstrel and Roberto. He retired in 1995, aged 59. He was jailed in 1985 for a year for failing to accurately declare tax on his earnings. The scandal meant that the honour bestowed on him by Queen Elizabeth II in 1975, the Order of the British Empire (OBE), was taken away. Without the jail sentence and tax fraud investigation, he almost certainly would have become Sir Lester Piggott
