“I’m getting chances, but it’s going to get tougher as my claim drops. But you just have to put in more work. When your claim goes, you soon find out where you are with the top lads” – Darragh O’Keeffe, The Irish Examiner, September 10th, 2019

AGED 21, Darragh O’Keeffe is already used to riding lots of winners during the summer. In the season of 2019, he had 40 winners on the board as early as October. That in itself was remarkable because just three years previously, Jack Kennedy had broke the record for number of wins by a conditional jockey in one season with 44.
