Colin Keane rode his first winner at Dundalk late in 2010.
Flash forward ten years and he has twice been crowned champion jockey in Ireland, in 2017 and 2020, each time riding 100 winners. The County Meath-born rider was also runner-up in 2015 and 2019.
He has been Ger Lyons’ stable jockey since 2014, the pair combining to win two Classics in Ireland in 2020 via Siskin (Irish 2000 Guineas) and Even So (Irish Oaks).
Keane was also third on the former in the 2020 Qatar Sussex Stakes, having also been third on Endless Drama in the Al Shaqab Lockinge Stakes at Newbury in 2016.
