Did you know?

From Clane, County Kildare, Mark Walsh has forged a close association with leading owner JP McManus and is regularly to be seen in the famous green and gold hoops. He rode his first Grade 1 winner on the McManus-owned Defy Logic at the Leopardstown Christmas festival in 2013. Injury robbed him of a first jockey's championship in the 2014/15 season but he finished the term on a high with success on Jezki in the Grade 1 Ladbrokes World Series Hurdle at the Irish National Hunt Festival at Punchestown.
