Reid first considering a Jockey’s career at 16 when he moved out of his family farm to pursue his dream of racing horses, and in the following years he moved From Ireland to England and won his first race.

However, his big break came with the victory on The King George & Queen Elizabeth Diamond stakes on Ile de Bourbon in 1978, and after that he started to win race after race, so much so that by 1980 he ranked as one the top racers.

He was not named one of the best in vain, in total Reid won 2,500 races from which 1,937 winners were in the UK and the rest were ridden in more than 12 different countries.

For his contribution to the horse racing community, Reid was made an MBE in 1997 (Most Excellent Order of the British Empire)

After building a reputable career he retired from the racetrack in September 2011, just to become president of the Jockeys Association and work for At The Races as a pundit and manager of the horses belonging to Mike Dawson and George Ward.
