Did you know: John Oxx began training in 1979 and is one of Ireland’s most respected and successful trainers, gaining a reputation for his unrivalled patience with his horses as well as being renowned for his gentlemanly demeanour. The decision of HH The Aga Khan to transfer his horses to Ireland in 1990 benefited John Oxx immensely, as he became the sole trainer for the hugely-successful breeder and together they have enjoyed tremendous success in Ireland and overseas, mostly notably with the superstars Sinndar and Azamour. However, Oxx is sure to be remembered most for his faultless training of Sea The Stars, whom he saddled to win six consecutive Group 1 races during an unbelievable 2009 season which culminated in a never-to-be-forgotten victory in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp.
