Did you know?

It could be argued that Shane Foley was one of the best apprentices of recent years not to win a Champion Apprentice title. He finished runner-up to fellow Michael Halford-apprentice Gary Carroll in 2009 with a fine tally of 33 winners and looked set to make a big challenge for the title in 2010 only to have his prospects scuppered by an injury sustained at Bellewstown in late-August and again he had to settle for second spot behind Joseph O'Brien. His failure to win the junior title hasn't slowed his progress at all and he quickly became well established as a top 10 rider in Ireland, mainly due to his association with Michael Halford. But it was Halford's fellow Curragh trainer Adrian Keatley who gave Shane his biggest success when Jet Setting landed the Tattersalls Irish 1,000 Guineas at the Curragh on May 22nd, 2016.
