30/07/02 Hall of Fame Jockey Inductee: Neville Sellwood

Former champion and ill fated jockey Neville Sellwood was a populat induction in the Australian Racing Hall of Fame at the Australian Racing Champion night at Crown Palladium in Melbourne tonight.

Born in Queensland in 1922, Neville Sellwood was an instant success in the saddle and was to prove himself one of the world's leading jockeys of his time.

He won six Sydney Premierships and most of Australia's premier races including two Melbourne Cups, three Caulfield Cups, three Cox Plates and the inaugural Golden Slipper on the mighty Todman.

His Melbourne Cup winners were Delta for Maurice McCarten (1951) and Toporoa for Tommy Smith (1955), while he won Cox Plates on Delta (1949), Noholme (1959) and Tulloch (1960). His three Caulfield Cup winners were Grey Boots (1950), Basha Felika (1951) and Tulloch (1957).

He then ventured overseas winning an English Derby and topping 100 winners in a season in France before tragically losing his life in a race fall in 1962 when he was just 40 years of age.
