Our most high profile and most successful horse ‘The Don’ of course won the 2016 Cheltenham Gold Cup. Somewhat of a legend in the yard, he has a temperament and looks as good as his ability and is loved by everyone who meets him! His other wins include; The Grade 2 ‘Irish Form Book Future Champions Bumper’ the 2013 Grade 1 ‘Bar One Racing Drinmore Novice Chase’ the 2014 Grade 3 ‘Star Best For Racing Coverage Chase’ the 2014 Grade 2 ‘Powers Irish Whiskey Chase’ the 2014 Grade 1 ‘John Durkan Memorial Punchestown Chase’ the 2015 Grade 2 ‘Kinloch Brae Chase’ the 2015 Grade 1 ‘Betfred Melling Chase’ the 2015 Grade 1 ‘Bibby Financial Services Ireland Punchestown Gold Cup’ the 2015 Grade 3 ‘Irish Daily Star Chase’ the 2015 Grade 1 ‘JNwine.com Champion Chase’ and the 2016 Grade 2 ‘Ladbrokes Ireland Kinloch Brae Chase’.

‘The Don’ was retired in January 2017 and will spend a very well deserved and very pampered retirement at Gigginstown House Stud.
