Did you know:

Grub Stake was John Joe Walsh’s first winner as a trainer when taking the bumper at Clonmel, on Thursday, March 7th, 1963, and for good measure, he rode it himself. Walsh had begun his training career the previous year and along with Kevin Prendergast, is Ireland’s longest serving trainer. No stranger to big-race success over the years, Walsh gained his most valuable win when the Rachael Blackmore-trained Ballyegan Hero took the €100,000 Galway Shopping Centre Handicap Hurdle on the penultimate day of the 2017 Galway festival. Walsh won the Munster National with Pelegro (Liam O'Donnell) in 1975 and Propunt (Trevor Hogan) in 1992. Propunt and Horgan were also successful in the Kerry National in 1992. More recently, Lord Singapore won the Troytown chase at Navan for Walsh in 1996, ridden by David Casey.
