Did you know?
Few jockeys have the experience of Niall McCullagh who rode his first winner, which was trained by his father Michael, at the Harvest Festival in Listowel in 1987, before most of his present day weigh-room colleagues were born! Niall has enjoyed considerable success over his long career but had to wait until 2012 to register his first Group 1 victory when taking the Irish St Leger on Royal Diamond at the Curragh for trainer Tommy Carmody.
Niall's son Scott is an apprentice with Mick Channon in Britain.
