BoyleSports Sign Joseph O’Brien As Horse Racing Ambassador

BoyleSports are delighted to announce that they have snapped up former Irish Champion Jockey, multiple classic winner and now trainer, Joseph O’Brien, as their new horse racing ambassador for the coming 2016/17 season.

O’Brien, who is only 23, has already saddled Intricately to win the Group 1 Moyglare Stud Stakes at the Curragh on the flat. Last March at the Cheltenham Festival he was responsible for Ivanovich Gorbatov winning the Triumph Hurdle despite it running under his father Aidan’s name as O’Brien Junior hadn’t acquired his licence at the time.

O’Brien’s training career got off to the perfect start back in June when he saddled four winners from his six runners at Gowran Park and Listowel.
