Patrick Says...

"Leopardstown stages some of the best racing in Ireland and the Christmas Festival is a meeting we target with all of our best horses. The big races are very prestigious and all races have excellent prize money on offer. A fabulous racecourse and a very fair track to ride with a stiff finish, Leopardstown is a racecourse I always love to win at."
