This is an In Person Signed White Card 4.5" x 2.5" by the Irish National Hunt Jockey who rode Amberleigh House to victory in the 2004 Grand National.
Graham Lee (born 16 December 1975 in Galway, Ireland) is a successful Irish jockey in Great Britain and Ireland. Prior to May 2006, he was the main stable jockey for John Howard Johnson, but was replaced by Paddy Brennan, allegedly after a disagreement over his return from an injury. Lee became the main stable jockey and deputy trainer for Ferdy Murphy, where he would remain until March 2012. In 2008 Lee attained the feat of being only the fourth National Hunt jockey to be placed in the first two positions in the National Hunt Jockey's Championship in ten years (following Robert Thornton, Richard Johnson and Timmy Murphy), at the time displacing Richard Johnson. In 2009, Lee began riding for newly licensed trainer Rose Dobbin, wife of jockey Tony Dobbin, in addition to his work for Murphy. Although his profile had dipped sharply among the ranks since joining Murphy, Lee has come very much back into the sport's consciousness through his involvement with several improving chasers and hurdlers, and moving into second place in the 2007-08 jockeys championship. He rode his 1000th career winner on 7th January 2012.
