Henry de Bromhead has steadily built his yard up over the last 15 years into one of the leading operations in Ireland. The legendary Sizing Europe was the one that established de Bromhead on the big-race scene, but since his retirement Henry has kicked on and found a steady stream of Grade 1 performers to represent him at the highest level.
Last season was a remarkable campaign for de Bromhead. While he had the significant disappointment of losing the Alan Potts horses early in the campaign, he bounced back in sensational style, registering 68 winners - which is by far his best-ever tally - finishing third in the trainers’ championship and saddling Special Tiara to win the Queen Mother Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival.
Henry was good enough to let Kevin Blake of attheraces.com behind the scenes at his Knockeen base to go through the many promising horses he has in his care.
