“I grew up in Dublin, Ireland and attended the Racing Academy in Kildare in 1995. My wife and I moved to the US in 2002, and I rode my first race here at River Downs in 2003.
I’ve been lucky to have had a great career that’s taken me all over the country. My family and I now call Shelbyville, Kentucky home. We have a farm here with a couple of OTTBs, kids’ ponies and layups.
I rode Kentwood back in 2009. It was easy to tell that being a racehorse wasn’t his life calling! Since arriving at Ariatti Equestrian Center, he has excelled as an eventer, foxhunter and Pony Club mount.
I’d like to thank LMG Racing and members of Ariatti Equestrian Center for the sponsorship in The Real Rider Cup. Thoroughbred aftercare is an important part of our industry. These horses have so much left to give when their racing careers end.”
