Bobby Beasley was a champion jockey. By 26, he had won a Cheltenham Gold Cup, a Champion Hurdle and a Grand National. But when he was 24, Bobby took his first drink and soon succumbed to alcoholism. He turned a corner after his friend, Nicky Rackard, urged him to attend Alcoholics Anonymous. Five years later, aged 38, Beasley rode Captain Christy to an amazing victory at the Cheltenham Gold Cup. In the history of unlikely comebacks, that of Irish jockey Bobby Beasley is the most heartwarming of them all.
