Kieren Fallon returned to his native Ireland to fulfil a new role as stable jockey to Curragh trainer Michael O’Callaghan for the 2016 Flat season. Champion jockey in Britain on six occasions, he has been associated with trainers Henry Cecil, Michael Stoute and Aidan O'Brien in a lengthy career. No stranger to big race success all over the world, he has won both the Epsom Derby and the Epsom Oaks on three occasions. His record in the English 2,000 Guineas reads a little better as he has won that race five times. He has been successful in the English 1,000 Guineas on four occasions. In Ireland, he has ridden the winner of 10 of the 12 Group 1 races. He has won the Irish Derby twice, the Irish Oaks three times and Irish St Leger once. He has won the Irish Champion Stakes on three occasions and also counts the Matron Stake, the Moyglare Stud Stakes, the National Stakes, the Phoenix Stakes, the Pretty Polly Stakes and the Tattersalls Gold Cup among the Irish Group 1 races that he has won. Fallon has yet to win an Irish 1,000 Guineas or an Irish 2,000 Guineas. Born in 1965, Kieren Fallon began his career with Kevin Prendergast and rode his first winner on the Curragh trainer's Picadilly Lord in a 10 furlong maiden at Navan on Monday, June 18th, 1984. He called time on his career on Monday, July 4th when he announced his retirement through the Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board.
