The biography of the greatest European rider of the 20th Century had been written. The highlight video of a 37-year career had been on sale for five years. The game was over for Lester Piggott. Even the man who won a record nine Epsom Derbies could not hold off the relentless entry of Father Time and the tax man. And then two weeks ago, all of that changed.

Veteran jockey Lester Piggot was a winner Tuesday as the Royal Ascot meet opened. Piggott, who came out of retirement at age 55, rode 7-1 shot Saddler's Hall to a six-length victory in the King Edward VII Stakes. Piggott has been leading Royal Ascot jockey 18 times since the first of his 114 winners in 1952, but this one gave him special satisfaction. "It's terrific; there is nothing better," he said. "It's great to be back at the Royal meeting, and riding a winner is extra special."
