His nickname was "The Head Waiter" a pun on his being the best among his contemporaries at waiting until the very last moment to produce his challenge, overtaking the field in the very last strides to the line.
On his retirement as a jockey in 1947, Wragg became a successful trainer, saddling 5 Classic Race winners as follows:
- 1,000 Guineas - Abermaid (1962), Full Dress II (1969)
- 2,000 Guineas - Darius (1954)
- Derby - Psidium (1961)
- St. Leger - Intermezzo (1969)
In rhyming slang Harry Wragg has been used to mean "fag" (cigarette), but this has fallen into disuse since Wragg's retirement from the public eye and his death. The Kinks sang a song, "Harry Rag". The Scottish football team Partick Thistle are sometimes referred to as the Harry Wraggs as it rhymes with the official club nickname, the Jags.
His son Geoff Wragg is also a successful horse race trainer.
