Proudly sponsored by Horse Racing Ireland. This episode is about Dark Emerald - with the horse's trainer, Brendan Powell. Formerly a Grand National winning jockey, Brendan turned his hand to training, where he had almost 650 winners. Dark Emerald was a flag-bearer for the yard, and had some big days out in Dubai, as you'll soon hear when you listen to the episode. Brendan is a brilliant storyteller, so I hope you enjoy listening to him as much as I did.  Follow HRI's social channels below: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/HRIRacing/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/HRIRa ..read more

S02 E07: The Pat Smullen Special
Horse Racing Heroes Podcast
by Mark Walsh
2y ago
Proudly sponsored by Horse Racing Ireland.  This episode is being released on September 15th, 2021, which is the one year anniversary of the passing of the great Pat Smullen. I wanted to do something to mark that. Rather than try to tell Pat's life story, as this podcast typically does with its subjects, I thought it best instead to speak to a number of people close to Pat, to talk about some good days, hear some happy memories, and hopefully put some smiles on faces on what is a sad day. I was lucky enough to speak to ten brilliant people for this: Pat's wife Frances, Dermot Weld, Mick K ..read more
