B0BE OVER 1,000 WINNERS I I One of Englands noted jockeys was James Woodburn, who died in 1919. He gave forty years of his life to the turf and, during that period, rode more than 1.000 winners. He won two Lincolnshire Handicaps, four Liverpool Cups, two Manchester Cups, the Oaks, One Thousand Guineas, Royal Hunt Cup and the Grand Prix de Paris. In 1S92 he rode J the late Sir John Blundel Maples Dame Pres-, ident in the One Thousand Guineas, in which the same owner had Stifflouse, ridden by T. Loates. Before the race the two jockeys had a bet of a suit of clothes that one would beat the other and, although Stifflouse was favorite, Woodburn managed to win by a head on his mount, which started at 33 to 1. In 1S92 at the Liverpool spring meeting Woodburn accomplished the "hat trick," winning the Union Jack Stakes, Prince of Wales Plate and the Molyneux Stakes.
