Johnson makes shocks retirement callPosted on Saturday 3rd April 2021 @ 18.18

Four-time champion jump jockey Richard Johnson has announced his retirement from racing with immediate effect.

The 43-year-old is the second most successful jump jockey of all time having saddled more than 3,500 winners, a tally that is bested only by the great AP McCoy.

Amongst Johnson's biggest wins are two Cheltenham Gold Cup triumphs on board Looks Like Trouble (2000) and Native River (2018), part of a 22-strong collection of Festival wins.

Johnson has enjoyed several other notable successes, both in the UK and Ireland, but decided to call time on his career after guiding Brother Tedd to third in his final ride of the day at Newton Abbot on Saturday.

"After nearly 30 years in the saddle, the time has come for me to retire," he said in a statement. "I have been so extraordinarily lucky to have ridden so many wonderful horses, and for so many incredible trainers and owners.

"It was particularly important to me to finish on one for Philip and Sarah Hobbs who, like Henry Daly, have supported me for over 20 years. I'll never be able to articulate what their loyalty has meant to me.

"There are so many people to thank who have been part of my journey."
