Johnny turned professional in May 2014 and enjoyed what can only be described as a meteoric rise in the National Hunt game.
Originally from County Cork, he rode his first Grade 1 winner aboard Sizing Granite in a novice chase at Aintree in 2015 while retained jockey to leading owners Ann and Alan Potts. Now based in England, our very own Love Envoi provided Johnny with a taste of Cheltenham Festival success in the 2022 Ryanair Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle.
Lorcan joined the team as a Conditional Jockey in 2021, the son of a trainer and ex-jockey Barry Murtagh. An appearance in the showjumping ring at the Horse of the Year Show and subsequently Royal International set him in good stead for time on the pony racing circuit, where he rode 22 winners.
Having ridden 37 winners under rules by January 2024, he has enjoyed notable success for the yard and can be credited for starting the majority of our youngsters. He has ridden winners on the likes of Love Envoi, Lady Adare and Geezer Rockstar. An accomplished horseman, he is invaluable as a full-time member of the team.
Ben joined the team in September 2022 as Conditional Jockey having made waves in the point-to-point field.
With 29 winners – at the turn of 2024 – he enjoyed success on his first ride for the yard aboard Fortunes Melody at Uttoxeter in September 2022. The son of top bloodstock agent Anthony Bromley, he is without doubt one of the up-and-coming talents of the weighing room.
