Triumphant jockey Richard Hughes returns to Windsor Racecourse
Jockey Richard Hughes rode seven winners at Windsor Racecourse last week

Legendary jockey Richard Hughes returned to the scene of his greatest triumph when he attended the last meet of the season at Windsor Racecourse yesterday.

A week earlier he had made history at Windsor, becoming only the second jockey in the history of British horse racing to ride seven winners on a card.

He returned to the scene of his triumph this week to meet fans, sign autographs and receive a specially created montage of his seven winners drawn by equine artist Liz Armstrong.

The montage will be printed for general sale with a percentage of the money raised going to charity.

Richard, 39, had family support yesterday - his son Harvey, four, came to the racecourse with him. He had cheered him on from home in Wiltshire a week earlier and happily posed for pictures with Dad.
