**NOTE that only the first 2 jockeys were recorded in the Racing Calendar. However, Frank Buckle had his first public ride on 17th May 1783 and rode regularly for the 1st Earl of Grosvenor, Richard Grosvenor, until the death of the Earl on 6th August 1802, so on the balance of probability it is likely he partnered the Earl's Derby mounts. After his death Frank teamed up with trainer Robert Robson, who trained for the Dukes of Grafton, Sir Charles Bunbury and Colonel Mellish, but also took some mounts for the eldest son of the 1st Lord Grosvenor, also called Richard. Furthermore, reports after Frank's death in 1832 reported he also rode for Mr Udny, Mr Durand, Mr Cookson and Mr Wilson.
