Joseph O’Brien to retire and become jumps trainer

Joseph O’Brien will quit the saddle at the end of the 2015 Flat season – to follow his father Aidan’s footsteps into the training ranks.

Joseph will operate from the same yard, in Piltown, Co Kilkenny, where his father cut his teeth at the beginning of his legendary trainer career.

In his new role, O’Brien will tutor a team, predominantly of jumpers, for JP McManus, whose former jockey, AP McCoy, backed the change of jobs.

“I think if anybody’s going to know how to train a racehorse, going from being a jockey to a trainer, it would be Joseph O’Brien,” said McCoy, who won a Grand National, aboard Don’t Push It, in 2010 and a Cheltenham Gold Cup, on Synchronised, in 2012, wearing McManus ‘famous green-and-gold silks.

“Joseph is keen on the training side of things – I think he will be very good at it,”

O’Brien has had a great career in the saddle, here are his major wins:

Anyone want to race a 10F to stayer? Surely someone out there has something akin to the Curragh or Epsom Downs? Why not give the kid a chance here? With Bart gone, surely a gap here for a patient trainer 😉😄😏

Prettty sure when you see these colours  Owner details running under the tutelage of Aiden you can be sure the horse is actually trained by Joseph......
