Since then, King, whose brother Johnny was also a jockey and James is a trainer, has ridden the likes of Parsons Pistol, Pandorama, Any Currency, Tina Kelly Lad, Alfa Beat and Draycott Place to victory. At Mainstown in 2019, Pa became the 60th rider to reach the 100-winner mark with the success of Go To Court.
