Tim Thomson Jones grew up surrounded by horses at his father's racing yard in Newmarket.
He accumulated sixteen Champion Amateur Rider titles over jumps and on the flat, in England and Europe and trained many good winners under both codes, including two at the Cheltenham Festival, when training for ten years from his base in Lambourn, Berkshire.
He is the only jockey, post war, to have ridden in all three races over the National fences in the same year, recording a 2nd (Topham), 5th (Foxhunters), PU (Grand National), completing almost 8 miles of the course and jumping 52 fences without a fall! He rode triple US Champion Steeplechaser Flatterer to victory in The Iroquois in Nashville, Tennessee, the second leg of a treble, and is likely to remain the only British jockey to ride a double in Madagascar!
But he is a chronic asthmatic and totally allergic to horses and their surroundings, however happily tests and treats them, fundementally using the same methods utilised by Dr Raymond Choy of the Nightingale Allergy Clinic in Wimpole Street, London, who has treated his allergies successfully for over forty years and who he consults regularly to compare cases.
"Having been a multiple Champion Amateur Jockey and a Trainer, it was first hand experience in my own yard of problems with Keep Talking, a Cheltenham Festival winning steeplechaser and Keel Row owned by HM the Queen Mother that led me to consult Dr Raymond Choy, a renowned specialist in human nutrition and allergies.Both the diagnosis and treatment of these two horses and then the identification that specialised equine calcium supplements, being given to combat a series of worsening fractures in the yard, were not working, had a dramatic impact.The treatment solved the problem, and helped the horses back to peak health and fitness and was the prototype of the Calciboost and Multiboost, equine calcium and multivitamin supplements, which I produce and continue to develop today."
