Jim Bolger has enjoyed tremendous success as a trainer and breeder since taking out his licence in 1976. Dessie Hughes rode Bolger's first winner, Peaceful Pleasure, the 2/1 second favourite in the Ballymurray Handicap Hurdle at Roscommon in September of the same year, From humble beginnings, he has built up a fine training establishment from his base in Coolcullen that has helped him capture many big races around the world in the last four decades. He has trained some exceptional colts in the recent past, with Teofilo, New Approach and Dawn Approach all winning an array of prestigious Group 1 contests, with the first-named pair going on to become successful stallions. Jim Bolger is also renowned for his handling of fillies and mares and has enjoyed notable success with the likes of Flame Of Tara, Finsceal Beo, Park Appeal, Jet Ski Lady and Alexander Goldrun.
