The extraordinary talents of NSW best ever bush jockey, Greg Ryan, were called into play at Narromine, but not even he could save the meeting.

Ryan, who repeatedly goes and does things behind the scenes at racetracks to keep the meetings going, jumped onto the lawn mower and went out onto the troubled section of Narromine course after race two. He found the area that was causing horses to slip and he set about fixing it.

But stewards deemed the track too dangerous, even after the healing hands of Ryan were applied and called the meet off. Earlier in race 1, a horse lost considerable ground when slipping on the bad patch.

Vision of Ryan, who has ridden over 4000 winners, was beamed across the land by Sky Racing. There he was on the lawnmower, hooting it to the rescue.

And it started a twitter melt down.

Top Scone trainer Cameron Crockett, who has used Ryan many times for wins, said: “I’ve lost count of the amount of horses I’ve seen him get off and load into the gates because the barrier boys couldn’t get them in.”

Super hoop Brenton Avdulla wrote: “Grey Ryan on a lawnmower between races at Narromine – I’ve seen it all now.”

Fellow jockey John Kissick wrote: “I remember a time when the gates weren’t working so he got his tools out and fixed ‘em so the meeting could proceed. He can do anything.”

Punter Warren from Warren wrote: “I was at Wellington one day and barriers wouldn’t open. Guess who they got to fix them? G. Ryan.”

Punter Ben Walker wrote: “He fixes cars, rides more than 4000 winners, mows the lawn at the track. He can do it all G.M Ryan.”

Mick Wallace who tips for Sky Racing was at Narromine. He wrote: “Must of thought he had a winner or two in those remaining rides. When I left he was laying turf.”

Ryan, before becoming a freakishly good jockey, was a motor mechanic.

He’s also a very good golfer.

And the Bible says we’re all born equal….hmmm, think on that a moment.
