Biography

Together with Billy Fiske, Jack Heaton is rated as the most brilliant of all American riders on the Cresta Run. He won the Grand National in 1927 and 1929, the Curzon Cup in 1930 and 1933, the Bott Cup in 1929 and 1933 (from a scratch handicap), and the Carlton Challenge Cup in 1929 and 1933. Perhaps his greatest ride came in February 1929 when he lowered the record from the top, his record of 58.0 seconds remaining unbeaten for seven years. Heaton is the only man to have won medals in the Olympic Winter Games 20 years apart. Jack Heaton eventually settled in France where he lived for many years.
