Did you know:
Paul rode over 200 winners in the UK whilst based with Philip Hobbs, including What’s Up Boys to win the Coral Cup at the 2000 Cheltenham Festival. Then, a year and a half later, he rode the same horse to win the prestigious Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury.
Once hanging up the boots it was always a natural progression that Paul would turned his attention to training. He had his first runner, Bronte Bay, at Gowran Park in April 2007, and has quickly gone from strength to strength as a top class handler.
He won the valuable Arthur’s Day Handicap at the Galway Festival in 2009 with Drunken Sailor, who won four more handicaps besides, and he then won the prestigious Galway Hurdle with the talented Moon Dice in 2011.
