LONDON — Steve Cauthen won the British Jockeys' Championship for the third time Saturday, clinching the title on the final day of the racing season.
Cauthen, 27, finished with 197 victories, the most for him since coming to Britain in 1979. Defending champion Pat Eddery of Ireland was second with 195, also a career best. Cauthen, who won titles in 1984 and 1985, and Eddery each had one winner Saturday at the last meeting of the year at Doncaster, in northern England.
Cauthen, who won the American Triple Crown with Affirmed in 1978, has earned more than $3.5 million in prize money this season.
