Henry de Bromhead has steadily built his yard up over the last 15 years into one of the leading operations in the country. 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 to register what was by far his best-ever tally of winners, finishing third in the trainer’s championship with 68 winners and saddling Special Tiara to win the Queen Mother Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival.
Henry is well on his way to securing another record tally of winners in 2017/18 and he was good enough to let Kevin Blake of attheraces.com behind the scenes at his Knockeen base to go through his team for the inaugural Dublin Racing Festival at Leopardstown this weekend.
