Did you know:
Paddy began his career riding on the pony circuit and attended
RACE on the Curragh from where he was placed with Kevin Prendergast. Too heavy
to be a flat jockey, Paddy switched his attentions to the jumping game and
joined Dessie Hughes and became an amateur, riding his first winner for trainer
Niall Moran at Down Royal in May 2008.
Paddy turned conditional on St Stephens Day 2010
and made a great start to life in the paid ranks when winning on the Liz Doyle-trained
The Hoodoo Remains at Tramore just six days later. Paddy teamed up with trainer
Jessica Harrington a couple of years later and continues to be based with the
Commonstown trainer. Paddy rode out his claim when successful on Neverushacon in
the Party Time Ltd. Marquee Hire Chase at Limerick on Sunday, May 8, 2018.
Paddy rode his biggest winner in terms of prizemoney when partnering the Jessica Harrington-trained Whisperinthebreeze to win the Abbey International Leopardstown Handicap Chase at the Dublin Racing Festival in February, 2019. He is an older brother of fellow National Hunt jockey, Jack.
His first Graded race success came at Navan on December 18, 2020 where he won the Grade 2 BetVictor Novice Hurdle on the Jessica Harrington-trained Ashdale Bob.
