There was a lot of transformation that had to happen. I'm 5ft 8ins and Red Pollard was an inch shorter.
Any jockey who is that tall is obviously going to really fight with weight, so I went on a huge reduction plan in order to get to the place where I could play this part.
I weighed around 160 lbs when it started. I thought if I got to 150 I would look gaunt enough to sell it and I ended getting down to 137.
