This former Champion Apprentice Jockey has spent his entire career to date under the guidance of master trainer, Jim Bolger.
Such is the regard in which Jim Bolger holds him that he has stated that he will become the no.1 choice rider in Coolcullen when Kevin Manning decides that his time has come to retire.
Ronan has ridden many group race winners but perhaps his most memorable victory to date came aboard Jennies Jewel at Royal Ascot 2016.
Denise Foster has recently taken over the reins at Cullentra House from leading trainer Gordon Elliott, who is currently serving a suspension from racing.
Denise is originally from Belfast but has been training horses for most of her career in County Meath. She comes from a show jumping and three-day eventing background and began training point to pointers originally.
The 67-year-old had been training at Possextown Farm in Enfield for more than 20 years.
At the most recent Cheltenham Festival in March, she sent out three winners, four seconds and two thirds while she also trained Lily’s Rainbow whom she won the Listed Heritage Stakes with at Navan in 2016.
We look forward to seeing what Denise can do with one of our most recent purchases, the five-year-old mare, Scarlet Witch.
Aidan ‘Mouse’ O’Ryan
Mouse O’Ryan is a well-known bloodstock agent who sources horses for Denise Foster and Gordon Elliott as well as being part of the Goffs UK team. Mouse is also the son of the famous bloodstock agent, Bobby O’Ryan.
Mouse has sourced some of the best horses that we have seen in recent years on the racecourse including Supreme Novices Hurdle winner Labaik, the Grade 1 Ryanair Hurdle winner Mick Jazz and the Group 1 winning miler, Ribchester.
In 2016, Mouse set up AOR Bloodstock Limited which is based in his home county of Kildare.
Mouse was recently involved in the purchase of our promising young mare, Scarlet Witch, and we look forward to him purchasing more horses on behalf of Sunday in the not too distant future.
Wexford native, Paul Nolan, has been training horses since 1996 at Toberona Stables near Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford.
He started off his career working under Jim Bolger from which, he decided to take out his training license. He has gone from strength to strength since, training over 500 winners, including multiple Grade 1 winners, in one of the toughest racing jurisdictions in the world.
Those Grade 1 winners include Joncol, who won the 2010 Hennessy Cognac Gold Cup in Leopardstown, Defy Logic, who won the 2013 Racing Post Novice Chase at the Leopardstown Christmas Festival and more recently, Latest Exhibition, the Grade 1 winning novice hurdler.
Nolan also trained Noble Prince to win the Jewson Novices Chase at the famous Cheltenham Festival in March 2011.
29 year-old Bryan Cooper hails from Tralee, County Kerry, and he was always destined to be involved in racing as his dad, Tom, is a successful trainer.
Cooper started out as an apprentice on the flat but quickly turned his hand to the national hunt game and was crowned champion conditional jockey in 2010/11.
He shot to stardom when he rode three winners at the 2013 Cheltenham Festival before being announced as the retained rider for Michael O’Leary’s Gigginstown House Stud in January 2014, a relationship that lasted just over three years.
In recent years, Bryan has ridden big race winners for Sunday trainer Paul Nolan and Willie Mullins with one of his biggest recent successes coming on the Nolan trained, Latest Exhibition, in the Grade 1 Nathaniel Lacy Solicitors Novice Hurdle at the 2020 Dublin Racing Festival.
As a multiple Grade 1 and Cheltenham Festival winning jockey, we can’t wait to see Bryan donning our black and yellow colours on the racecourse.
