Did you know:

From Kells, County Meath, Mark Flanagan rode his first winner on Michael Cunningham's Victory Flight in a mile handicap at Navan in May, 2001. He rode five more winners on the Flat and another over hurdles before taking a six year break from the racing game. Waterloo Chateau, trained by Gerry Keane, gave Flanagan a winner on his first ride over fences on his return to the saddle when landing a handicap chase at Downpatrick in May, 2014. 

Mark called time on his riding career after partnering the Gerry Keane-trained Effernock Lad to success in a handicap hurdle at Downpatrick in August, 2019. At the time he said, "I was waiting for that winner to happen and I've retired now. I'll stay working for Gerry, he's been very good to me and is a good friend as well as a boss."
