ZEFTAN provided the biggest win of my career to date when taking the Ladies Derby at the Curragh last weekend. It was a great thrill to ride a winner at the headquarters of Irish flat racing and I am very thankful to Adrian Keatley and his team for giving me the opportunity.

My grandfather Charlie Smith, who won an All-Ireland with Meath in 1949, had horses in training with Al O’Connell. My Dad, Patrick (Mooney) was stable jockey there at the time and that’s actually how my parents met.
