Vale Mr Les McLennan (Former Jockey)

Racing NSW has been informed of the passing of former top jockey Les McLennan.

Les, 74, was based in Port Macquarie for some time and teamed up with trainer Glen Hodge to win a long list of races.

“Les rode everywhere and won numerous premierships in the country,” Hodge said.

“It was mentioned in one of the papers that he rode around 500 winners, but he would have ridden that many just for me! Les would have won thousands of races.

“He rode some top horses and won a race at Randwick one day on Clown Prince who beat Postage and George Moore.

“He was a very strong rider, similar to Mick Dittman, and also won many races on the top sprinter Black Money."

Fellow Port Macquarie trainer, John Sprague, described Les McLennan as the ‘Robert Thompson of his time', travelling around the state to boot home a swag of winners.
