The Curragh Renaming Jockeys Room In Honour Of Pat Smullen

CEO Pat Keogh says they wanted a permanent tribute to the Rhode man.

The Jockey's Room at The Curragh racecourse is being re-named in honour of Pat Smullen. 

The late Rhode man had some of his greatest moments at the Kildare track including two Irish Derby wins in 2004 and 2016. 

The first coming aboard Grey Swallow for Dermot Weld and Rochelle Quinn and over a decade later on Harzand for the same trainer and longtime supporter HH Aga Khan IV.

It was also the venue for his fundraiser for Cancer Trials Ireland in September 2019, which raised 2.6 million euro. 

The move will be made formal in time for the new flat racing season which begins officially on Sunday March 21st 2021 with the Irish Lincolnshire. 

CEO of The Curragh Pat Keogh says they're delighted to have a permanent tribute to Pat:
