Did you know: 

From St Mullins, County Carlow, Richie Deegan rode his first winner on the Paul Nolan-trained Theyellowlough which was his first ride on the racecourse at Cork in early April 2010. He rode his first winner over hurdles at Punchestown in November 2012 when partnering Followmeuptocarlow for trainer Tom Donoghue. Richie's career really took off when he rode Bargy Lady to win for Willie Mullins at the Listowel festival in 2016. 

Richie rode his first double at Gowran Park in February of the following year and better was to come when he won the Grade 1 Racing Post Champion INH Flat Race on the Mullins-trained Tornado Flyer at the Punchestown festival in April 2018. Another notable winner he rode for the champion trainer was Yukon Lil in the Listed ISF EBF Mucklemeg (Mares) INH Flat Race in the colours of Mrs John Magnier at Gowran Park in October 2018.
