Based in Stamullen, County Meath, John has enjoyed a steady stream of success ever since, with his most notable winners being Sophist in a Grade 3 juvenile hurdle at Fairyhouse in 2006, Orgilgo Bay in the Lartigue Handicap Hurdle at the Listowel Festival in 2014 and with Go Another One in the Grade 3 Michael Purcell Memorial Novice Hurdle in February 2019.
