Abstract (Document Summary)

Start with two Sovereign Awards as the country's top apprentice. He's also the first rider in the history of the Sovereigns to win apprentice and jockey honors in the same year. Then there's his Eclipse Award as North America's top apprentice. (Sandy Hawley is the only other Canadian to win this award.)

Some promising young jockeys became very ordinary once they lost their apprentice allowance. Not [Mickey Walls]. He ran away with the spring meeting at Greenwood, where his mounts won $490,786. That was $250,742 more than runner-up Jack Lauzon.

Of his many accomplishments to date, Walls also lists breaking Hawley's apprentice record of 230 wins in a single season. He did it with his usual flare, too. With only three days to go on his apprentice allowance, Walls had 223 wins.
