Did You Know: Son of the legendary trainer Vincent O’Brien, Charles O’Brien was always to be expected to follow in the footsteps of his father and having served his apprenticeship with Vincent, he took out his own license in 1993. While never having a large team of horses under his care, Charles has enjoyed a steady stream of big-race success. In more recent times, the likes of Bewitched, Glowing and Grecian Dancer have all done well for his Straffan stable.
