From Rhode, County Offaly, Pat Smullen was champion apprentice in 1995 and again in 1996 and rode his first Group 1 winner on the Tommy Stack-trained Tarascon in the Moyglare Stud Stakes the following year. He was appointed as stable jockey to Dermot Weld in 1999 and was crowned champion jockey for the first time in 2000. No stranger to big race success, Smullen landed his biggest winner when Harzand, trained by Dermot Weld, won the Epsom Derby on Saturday, June 4th, 2016. The same horse gave Smullen his second success in the Irish Derby at the Curragh on June 25th, 2016. Smullen has been champion jockey in Ireland on nine occasions, in 2000, 2001, 2005, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2014, 2015 and 2016. He rode his first Classic winner when Vinnie Roe won the Irish St Leger in 2001 and went on to win the race with the same horse for the next three years. He rode his first English Classic winner when Refuse To Bend, trained by Dermot Weld, won the QIPCO 2,000 Guineas in 2003. The following year he won the Irish Derby for the first time on the Weld-trained Grey Swallow and has landed the Irish 1,000 Guineas on two occasions with Weld's Nightime (2006) and Bethrah (2010). Smullen enjoyed further Irish Classic success when winning the Oaks on Covert Love, trained by Hugo Palmer, in 2015. Smullen has also ridden big race winners on the likes of Rite Of Passage, Dress To Thrill, Emulous, Free Eagle and Benbaun.
