Did you know: 

From Taghmon, County Wexford, Sean began his career in the amateur ranks and as an 18-year-old, rode his first winner, Cordovan Brown at Punchestown in October, 2017. It was only his second ride. He rode three winners as an amateur and his career really took off when he turned professional in August of the following year. 

Sean wasted little time in quickly establishing himself as a leading conditional jockey. He won the Matheson Handicap Chase at the Dublin Racing Festival on the Gordon Elliott-trained Eclair De Beaufeu in February, 2020 and ended that season with a fine tally of 27 winners as he took third place in the conditional jockeys' championship. 

Sean notched up his 60th winner and rode out his claim when taking the Cork Grand National on the John Ryan-trained Dromore Lad at the Mallow venue on Sunday, November 1, 2020.
