Description:
Elnathan "Nat" Flatman (1810–1860) was a British Champion flat racing jockey. He began his thirty-four-year racing career as an apprentice jockey at age fifteen. By 1840 he was dominating British racing, winning the Champion Jockey title thirteen years in a row.

During his career, Nat Flatman won many important Thoroughbred horse races in England including ten Classics. Often recorded as "E. Flatman," in France he is listed as Edward Flatman who traveled there to compete in several major races. Included in his French successes were three wins in the then most prestigious horse race in France, the Prix du Jockey Club, and two wins in the most prestigious race for fillys, the Prix de Diane.

Flatman had his portrait painted by equine artist Harry Hall (1814–1882) and by John Frederick Herring, Sr. (1795–1865) and his son, John Herring, Jr. (1820–1907).

Nat Flatman retired from racing in 1859 and died the following year. The epitaph on his headstone in All Saints Church, in the renowned English racing town of Newmarket states that he was "known to be honest, sober, discreet and plain living." The town later named a street in Nat Flatman's honour.
