Did you know:

A former leading jump jockey, Shay Barry enjoyed Grade 1 success on Rathgar Beau, His Song and Holy Orders during a fine career in the saddle. He landed other graded wins on the likes of Moscow Express and Justified and a host of big handicap wins came his way with the likes of Anothercoppercoast (Leopardstown Chase), Treble Bob (Kerry National), Black Queen (Galway Hurdle) and Foxchapel King (Troytown Chase). Shay rode the Jessica Harrington-trained Space Trucker to win the Johnny Henderson Grand Annual Handicap Chase at the Cheltenham Festival in 1999. He retired from the saddle in September 2013 and immediately turned his hand to training from his base in Kilmeaden, County Waterford. He took out his licence early in the following year and his first winner arrived at Sligo in May 2014 when Cracked Rear View won the INH Flat Race under Richie Kiely.
