Since it was founded in 1964, the Injured Jockeys Fund has helped over 1,000 jockeys. It now has rehabilitation and fitness centres in Lambourn and Malton, with a third opening later this year at Newmarket. To raise funds for the charity’s life changing work, English silversmith Theo Fennell, in partnership with Goodwood Racecourse, has made a limited edition silver paper knife (£1,950) with a pommel cast in the shape of the 26-time flat racing champion jockey Gordon Richards. The son of a Shropshire miner, Richards grew up riding the pit ponies that his father reared at the family home and is one of only two jockeys (the other is Tony McCoy) to have received a knighthood. A donation of £150 from the sale of each of the 250 knives will go to the Injured Jockeys Fund.
