She won a scholarship and trained as a soprano for four years. Upon finishing her studies she became a vocalist with the top show bands playing prestigious Irish venues. She went on to record under the name Jacky and Jacky Lee. Particular hits were “White Horses” and “Rupert” both of which were TV themes.

It became a top 10 hit in the UK charts in April 1968. The book The Penguin Television Companion claimed it to be the best television theme in history. It has been copied and used many times since.

White Horse – The Shape

The White Horses is a 1965 television series co-produced by RTV Ljubljana (now RTV Slovenija) of Yugoslavia and German TV (Südwestfunk). The story follows the adventures of a teenage girl Julia (Helga Anders) who leaves Belgrade to spend a holiday on a stud farm run by her Uncle Dimitri (Helmuth Schneider), where with the help of head groom Hugo (Franz Muxeneder), white Lipizzaner horses are raised. In the first episode, stallion Boris is stolen by gypsies who dye his white coat brown so that no one will recognise him. Julia and Hugo set off to find Boris and upon his recovery an affinity is formed between girl and horse. A dubbed version of the show was broadcast in the United Kingdom from 1968, and repeated for many years afterwards.
