**NOTE that only the first 2 jockeys were recorded in the Racing Calendar. However, Jem Robinson did ride all of Lord Jersey's horses and partnered Richard, a bay colt brother to Sporus by Orville, to win a 100 Guineas Sweepstake at Newmarket on 28th April 1821, so it is reasonable to assume he partnered Richard in the Derby.
