Did you know:

Peter Casey, one of the most colourful personalities in Irish racing and the man who trained Flemenstar to win three Grade 1 races, died in the early hours of Saturday, January 27, 2018. He was 82. A fine and well-respected trainer, Casey enjoyed considerable success throughout his career, notably with owner Basil Brindley. In 1991, Casey sent out Flinders Passage to win a Listed handicap hurdle at Galway, while Jack The Bus proved a real money-spinner over fences, winning the Troytown Handicap Chase at Navan in 2010 and the Foxrock Handicap Chase at Leopardstown two years later.

But it was the fortunes of Flemenstar which propelled the proud Dubliner to the big time. During his novice season over fences in 2011/12, Flemenstar won five times and two of those were Grade 1 races. He landed the Frank Ward Solicitors Arkle Novice Chase at Leopardstown and the Powers Gold Cup at Fairyhouse while the following season he won the John Durkan Chase at Punchestown.

Des Scahill was a lifelong friend of the Meath-based trainer. On Casey's passing, Scahill was quoted as saying that racing had said goodbye to one of the few remaining characters in the game. He said, "Racing is losing character after character and Peter was certainly one of the great characters of the game. People who saw his interview on RTE might have thought he would have been embarrassed by what he said but it was the complete opposite. He got tremendous mileage out of it. I was lucky enough to visit him recently and while his health might not have been great, he was still well able to hold his own in an argument, let me tell you! He truly was a great character and he will be missed by so many."
