Glen Boss (Bossy), born 21 August 1969 in Caboolture. Commenced his racing career in Queensland and is one of Australia’s most iconic sporting heroes. Having won the Melbourne Cup on three consecutive occasions (2003, 2004, 2005) with Makybe Diva, he has become a household name in the racing industry. In 2015, Glen was inducted into the Australia Racing Hall of Fame. 

In the below video, we spoke to Glen about what that meant and how he prepares for the big Spring season each year.

Outside of the Melbourne Cup, Boss has won just about every major race in Australia including the Cox Plate (3), Golden Slipper (2), and Doncaster Handicap (4). Glen Boss is Australia’s premier big race jockey, whose career is defined by his commitment to not holding back. 

Glen wants to win a fourth Melbourne Cup. He wants to be considered the greatest jockey of all time, and there’s no chance of him holding back. As long as he can ride, he’ll work to reach these goals. Boss is showing no signs of slowing down and he is still in high demand throughout Australia.
