Did you know:

From Ballyhea, County Cork, Ken Condon’s racing education was split between both the breeding and racing industries. Initially, he spent time in America, most notably working for the world-renowned Lanes End Farm in Kentucky. The more racing-relevant phase of Condon’s racing education was five years with the legendary John Oxx, the majority of that time being spent looking after his two-year-old barn. During his time with Oxx, Condon would spend his winters in America, picking up additional experience with the likes of Todd Pletcher and Neil Howard. Having finished his time with Oxx, Condon went about acquiring his own licence and began training in 2002. 

He was well established in the training ranks before Success Days came along but he certainly put Condon on the map. However, it was Romanised, another owned by Robert Ng, that gave him his first big victory when winning the Tattersalls Irish 2,000 Guineas at the Curragh in May, 2018.
