Blake grew up in Kilmore (Vic) being born to a family of saddlers.  He has always been a polished jockey and won the 2007-08 Sydney Metropolitan Jockeys’ Premiership with 77 wins (shortened to equine influenza) and took out the 2005 RVL Scobie Breasley Medal as a 17-year-old.  Blake’s first big win was in the 2008 Melbourne Cup on the Bart Cummings-trained Viewed.  Blake said when he finally hangs up his saddle he would like to have an involvement in mentoring and developing the skills of young jockeys.
