Did You Know: A more than capable amateur rider, Michael Halford rode around 50 winners but has really made his name in more recent years in his role as a trainer on the Curragh. He served as assistant to Noel Meade until branching out on his own in 1984. He has trained with notable success since then and gained his first Group 1 success with Casamento in the Racing Post Trophy at Doncaster in 2010.
