Did you know:

A son of the legendary Christy Roche, Padraig took over the his father's licence in January 2018 and saddled his first winner the following month when the Mark Walsh-ridden Out Of The Loop scored a comfortable success in the Tommy Carberry Handicap Hurdle at Fairyhouse on Saturday, February 24. 

Roche landed his first Graded race when the Robbie Power-ridden/Peter Comerford-owned Way Back Home landed the Grade 3 Winning Fair Juvenile Hurdle at Fairyhouse in February, 2019. A first Cheltenham festival winner came his way in 2022 when the Mark Walsh-ridden Brazil won the Boodles Handicap Hurdle.
