Mick Dillon (Michael Patrick Dillon)
BiographyEpsom, Surrey, England, UK
Mick Dillon was born into a horse-racing family; his grandfather, a native of County Kerry, was an near-legendary trainer of racing champions; Mick's father and uncles were top notch jockeys on racecourses in England and elsewhere; Mick's uncle Bernard Dillon was briefly married to the music hall diva Marie Lloyd. With such a family history, it was natural that Mick would soon find himself on a horse, as he was, riding in races from a very early age. Read more...
