#585 Jockeying for Tommy Loates


Mr Tommy Loates is listed in the Jones 1000 as being born in Boston, Massachusetts on October 6, 1867, time unknown. Well, in all fairness, the date is correct but the town is not: Loates was born in Derby (pronounced Darby) England. We have rectified his time to 10:32 AM giving him a 26 Scorpio Rising, (HS) “the fate of the old King”. McClung writes that this symbolized a bright in human affairs that accepts unconsciously the culture he finds himself part.

Tommy has a Grand Square or Cardinal Grand Cross (see the blue lines). He also has a third minor opposition that didn’t exert much emphasis on his life, as Pluto was not discovered in his lifetime but does help delineate his Splash Temperament Type.

For Loates, that culture was horse-racing, and he was jockey par excellence. By the time he reposed, he rode‭ ‬1,425‭ ‬winners from‭ ‬7,140‭ ‬mounts,‭ ‬spanning ‬16‭ ‬seasons– ‬the highest total (19.997 %) since Fred Archer (who rode 2,748 races from 8,004 mounts, and had a staggering 34.33% win ratio.) He is not listed in the National Horse Racing Hall of Fame, located in Saratoga Springs, New York, because he never competed here but can be found in the Jockeypedia and the British National Horse Racing Hall of Fame located in Suffolk, England.

Loates married after this jockey career, and had no children.

Tommy Loates progressed to demise on September 26, 1910 in Brighton, England. He has a preponderance in Taurus that is throughout his 10th house making a house stellium as well. This suggests that he never transitioned over from sport, to managing a personal life. This is not uncommon, but always unfortunate. Two of my personal favorites, Gary Stevens, winner of 3 Kentucky Derbys, and Julie Krone, only quit when the doctors warned them that further aggravation to their spine would lead to paraplegia. There charts are below.
Gary is a see-saw temperament type.
Julie is a Northwestern Locomotive.
