Commemorating Heinrich 'Hein' Bollow’s 100th Birthday (* December 05, 1920)

Hein Bollow is a horseracing legend. He is the first German and the second athlete worldwide to win more than 1,000 races—first as a champion jockey and later as a trainer.

Bollow was born in 1920 in Nienstedten near Hamburg. His father is the owner of a transportation company and Bollow grows up with horses. He starts riding polo horses, show horses and jumpers at the age of 10 at a nearby equestrian centre in Klein Flottbek. Five years later he begins an apprenticeship as a jockey in Berlin-Hoppegarten. His height of 1.55 m is perfect for the sport. A few months later Hein Bollow competes in his first race. 

He can barely complete his apprenticeship before getting drafted into the cavalry in 1940. Soon he is sent to the eastern and western front. After getting wounded he is captured by the French and taken prisoner of war. Upon his release in 1947 he goes to Cologne, where he would he would launch his international career.

He scores 1,033 victories as a jockey, wins the German derby 4 times—1953 with Allasch, 1954 with Kaliber, 1956 with his favourite horse Kilometer and 1962 with Herero, and is awarded jockey of the year 13 times.  

In 1963 he becomes a trainer and adds 1,661 more victories to his name. This includes the 1974 German Derby with Marduk and one jockey of the year award. In 1975 he receives the Federal Republic of Germany’s first class Order of Merit for his services. The prominent athlete with the big laugh is a frequent guest on television shows. He retires in 1988 but continues to feel at home on the racetrack. Even at an advanced age the man with the horn-rimmed glasses and the round midsection would visit the stables in Cologne-Weidenpesch every day. Hein Bollow dies on April 20, 2020, after suffering a stroke. He was just a few months shy of turning 100.
