Pat Eddery - Trainer
Pat was the most successful jockey of his generation in Britain. The 11 times champion won every Classic in England and Ireland and achieved a record 29 centuries. He lives and breathes horses and after 35 years in the saddle, has taken over the reins as trainer. He trained the group 1 Winner, Hearts of Fire.
"I was very lucky to have had a marvellous career as a jockey, riding all round the world. If I achieve as a trainer, half of what I achieved as a jockey, I'll be very happy".
