Meet Your Trainer ..
A Winning Combination ...
From Dunboyne, County Meath, Jack is a graduate of the University College of Dublin (Agricultural Science) and of the Godolphin Flying Start programme (2011-2013). Upon graduation from the GFS course Jack gained more experience working with such trainers as Jim Bolger, Gai Waterhouse, Roger Varian, and also with leading breeze up conditioner Brendan Holland. Jack sent out his first winner at Dundalk in August 2018 when his parents' homebred filly Black Magic Woman won the juvenile fillies' maiden and since then it's fair to say that Jacks career has gone from strength to strength.
When questioned for an interview recently about why he decided to go down the training route? Jack responds by saying: "I would say that since a young age I always enjoyed being involved in competitive sport so once I focused on making a career in the thoroughbred horse industry I could always see myself angling towards the racing side of things to satisfy my competitive nature and my passion for the thoroughbred racehorse. Upon graduation from the flying start programme I spent a few more years gaining experience predominantly in racing for some notable people so it was at around that point that I thought I had what it took to go out and train for myself.
