It’s journalism where his true passion lies. His favourite sports to cover are Horse Racing and basketball. Jackson first stepped foot onto a racetrack at the age of 10 and instantly fell in love with the game, he hopes one day to own a group one winner.
Jackson has correctly picked seven out of the last eight Crown Oaks winners and two out of the last three Melbourne Cup winners. His favourite horses are Weekend Hussler, Miss Andretti, Apache Cat and Black Caviar.
