Racing historians rate Arthur "Stumpy" Davis as one of the best lightweight jockeys produced in Queensland. He rode nearly 500 winners and took three Brisbane premierships. Davis died after a race fall in 1928.

His career was interrupted when he was disqualified for three years for a ride in Sydney in the early 1920s. To this day it is considered one of the harshest penalties imposed on a jockey. His best wins included the Stradbroke Handicap (Gold Tie [2]), VATC Futurity Stakes (Gold Tie), Brisbane Cup (Venerable, Piastoon, Canning Queen), Queensland Derby (Lordacre), QTC St Leger (Piastoon), Queensland Cup (Karamu, Royal Howard), Queensland Guineas (Lordacre), AJC Total Handicap (Lordacre), Hopeful Stakes (Steely), MacDougall Stakes (Nigra Avis), Moreton Handicap (Lordacre), Chesterfield Plate (Gold Tie), Ascot Handicap (Lordacre) and King's Plate (Lordacre).
