The jockey (35) won the Gold Cup on Lord Windermere and he waved his hands as "a little hello to a friend I lost when I was a young lad" he told The Star.

"People were asking me about my celebration after the race.

"It's from a cowboy-type movie called 8 Seconds about a young lad who becomes a bull riding champion.

"In the movie he does that wave as a little hello to a friend he has lost and that's my little hello to a friend I lost when I was a young lad."

He added that his nerves will still shattered after the post-race steward's inquiry but he never doubted they would triumph.
