Greville Starkey (1940 – 14 April 2010) was an English jockey who rode almost 2,000 winners during a 33-year career on the flat.
Starkey scaled the heights of his profession during his 33-year career in which he rode 1,989 winners on the Flat. He claimed a notable Classic double-double in 1978 when landing The Derby and Irish Derby on Shirley Heights and the Oaks and Irish Oaks on Fair Salinia.
As well as Classic success on Shirley Height and Fair Salinia, Starkey landed the 1964 Oaks on Homeward Bound and the 2,000 Guineas on To-Agori-Mou in 1981 and Dancing Brave in 1986. Starkey was champion apprentice in 1957 and retired from racing at the end of the 1989 season.
He was said to have caused Dancing Brave's loss in the 1986 Epsom Derby.
Starkey was dogged for years after by accusations that he had held Dancing Brave up too long and given him too much to do at the end.  He was also involved in controversy at Royal Ascot in 1988 after being unseated when Ile de Chypre suddenly swerved across the course.
Starkey died of cancer at the age of 70 at his home outside Newmarket on 14 April 2010. His partner of 15 years, Julie Elliott, was with him when he died. Fans remembered him fondly on his Lasting Tribute page within hours of his death being announced
