Did you know?

From Ballingarry, County Limerick, a young Billy Lee can been see in action in the Castletown Donkey Derby in 1994 in the infamous clip on YouTube! While he is a rare sight over jumps now, Billy Lee looked quite a promising rider over hurdles back in 2005/6, with the highlight coming on the Tommy Stack-trained Wanango in the Listed Gordon Plant Memorial Newton Novices' Hurdle at Haydock. Not long after that he refocused his attentions on the Flat with tremendous success and recorded his first Group 1 win on Fiesolana, trained by Willie McCreery, in the Matron Stakes at the inaugural Irish Champions Weekend at Leopardstown in September, 2014.
