Russell Maddock

The Basics

Categories: Jockeys
Region: South East Queensland

Russell Maddock holds the record for the most wins in Brisbane jockeys' premierships with nine, which is remarkable because for much of his career he rode in England. He rode many top horses but his effort to win back-to-back Doomben Cups on Earlwood was outstanding. He was also highly regarded as a rider at Albion Park. Rated with the very best jockeys to come out of Queensland he later returned to settle on the Gold Coast. Russell Maddock and Sefiona
