Bryony Frost Q&A: Graham Clark talks to the Grade One winning jockey

Graham Clark speaks to Grade One-winning jockey Bryony Frost concerning her career and the coming season.
She won the conditional jockeys championship last season, hit the headlines by Frodon in Cheltenham in March and has emerged among the very talked-about young riders in the sport, thus listening to Bryony Frosts perspectives on racing and life Generally is fun and enlightening:
You cant represent that kind of feeling if you cross the line. You dont understand where the line is, but then heads start to evaporate and all Ive got is Frodons earsflat again, his mane into my head and all I have seen is only a blur of green and someplace theres the line and that is all we are going to. You cross it and the entire world just disappears for a moment. You do not acknowledge where youre, what race it is is him and hes been. It was only a proud moment – that.
We stopped in the services in the road home for a coke and a hamburger and I had a notice on such car that stated,we watched it on the telly, that was class, things like this. I havent got a clue who they were, but they took the opportunity. You here a few stories that are evil. If I will let people into my world a little bit and see the way I see these men and also the reason Im doing this, thats mega for me personally. We live to create.
Its the Gold Cup that is amateur. I recall watching him the year before using Victoria (Pendleton) believing I would just love to ride him because hes your older chap at like six oclock in the day – that is just like his metaphor for person – hed have his whiskey at six, sat at a large armchair and he would just put the entire world to rights. This was him that he just looked the whole way round. This was a mega day and that I thought it likely wouldnt get better than that.
I wouldnt be saying that I have won Grade OnesI would not have been placed into any kind of limelight when it wasnt for Paul and him giving me that the support along with his owners. They have been like a second family to me here. From being under the wing of those my riding has enhanced.
As a result, your work is to improve your horses profession, that is what youre used to do and that is the reason you love the job, because each single time you sit a horse, whether youve got a one-litre motor or a V8, youre trying to make him the very best he could be.
Ive always just done me. I have never attempted to design myself on anyone or copy anyone. I try to learn from anyone and everybody else – . To any kid in life hoping to do so, you have got to try and surround yourself with those that are very good at their jobs. Familiarizing yourself with champions if you want to be somewhere close to the top.
To come to Sandown (for the previous day of this year ) was a big moment for me personally, I was on 49 winners – that I really would have loved to get to 50. We understood we had the title in the bag, that was done so everybody came up to say weve a got a fiver on Black Corton and you and that I was just likeOK but he came back on song. He gave me the very spin of my entire life and put me on cloud nine following a miserable five weeks beforehand. I owe a good deal to him and it was mega to find the name.
I have always believed its opinions that will prevent you in the days end. They are not reality, and that means you dont need to listen to them. For me, if you are good enough, youll find the opportunities. Paul doesnt offer me rides because I am a girlhe gives me rides since I carry out my instructions and strive hard and do the very best I can. Thats the reason , not because of that I am. It cant be changed by me, Im a woman, that is me.
(A journalist) called me up and wanted to do an interview, and his first question was,women struggle because theyre not as powerful as men and my hackles went up instantly. I said,I will give a believer to you and request that you speak for me. He was somewhat baffled, but statedall right. I said,youve got a rugby player and a top jockey, so name me a rugby player, which he did, and I said,name me a leading jockey and he saidDicky (Richard) Johnson, because he is our best one. I said OK, theyre likely to deadlift now, who is likely to lift the most weight and he said,the player, of course, so I asked why and he said,because he is stronger. I said,straight line for a mile, who do you think will be tired at its end and were going to put them both? . The player was said by him since he doesnt know how to ride a horse and I asked,why is thathe ummed and ahhed for a moment and said,it is strategy. And I said,well, I just answered your question and put down the phone on him.
