Description
Information
Greg Hall survived a roustabout life as a kid and an apprentice to become one of Australia's most successful jockeys.

Hall did not see his mother for twelve years after his father, the great jumps jockey Ron Hall, stole him in the dead of night when he was only two. He sold papers in front of the landmark Young & Jackson's Hotel in Melbourne at 11 to feed himself, and roamed the unsavoury area of Fitzroy Street, St Kilda at 12. Hall then spent seven years as an apprentice, being shunted between Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

He rode his first Group 1 winner for his father in 1978 at aged 21 but returned to Melbourne to seek advice from the great Roy Higgins to put polish on his style. Years later Higgins rated Hall in the top ten jockeys he had ridden against.

This is Greg Hall's story.
