Did you know?

From Kildare town and a son of former jockey Raymond Carroll, Gary was involved in a three-way tie with Joseph O'Brien and Ben Curtis for the apprentice championship in 2010 with 39 winners apiece. He was champion apprentice on his own the previous year with 44 winners.

Gary's father Raymond won the Irish St Leger on the Vincent O'Brien-trained Gonzales in 1980. In a fine career of his own, Gary has enjoyed notable success with the likes of Brendan Brackan, Doctor Geoff, Invincible Ash, Glass House and Euphrasia. The Michael Halford-trained Invincible Ash was Gary's first Group race winner when successful in the Group 3 Woodies D.I.Y. Sapphire Stakes at the Curragh in June 2011. 

A notable earlier success in Britain came on the Willie Mullins-trained Sesenta in the totesport Ebor at York in 2009 and Gary shared his first Royal Ascot winner with Gavin Cromwell when Quick Suzy lived up to her name with success in the Group 2 Queen Mary Stakes in June 2021.
