Tributes have flooded in from across the world of horse racing to Ruby Walsh after the legendary Irish jockey announced his retirement following a record-breaking career. Walsh, 39, announced he was going out on a high on Wednesday after riding joint favourite Kemboy to victory in the Punchestown Gold Cup for trainer Willie Mullins.
The Co. Kildare native is one of the greatest National Hunt jockeys in history, riding over 2,500 winners in a glistening 24-year career. His total of 59 wins at jump racing's showpiece Cheltenham Festival remains the record to beat and he won the Grand National on two occasions.
Well, to look back at a fantastic career, Ruby's Dad, the legendary trainer and broadcaster, Ted Walsh spoke to Ivan.
