Did you know:


When his father Francis died in October 2016, Francis took over the licence. A fine rider in his day, he enjoyed no shortage of success as an amateur and the winners kept coming when he joined the professional ranks. He was associated with a number of his father’s best horses including the likes of Nancy Myles, Una’s Choice, To Your Honour and Newhall. Francis acted as assistant trainer to his father once he retired from the saddle and recorded his first winner in his own name when Peace N’Milan won the Book For The Easter Festival Mares Handicap Hurdle at Fairyhouse on February 25th, 2017. The mare was a winner again up at Clonmel five days later.
