It has been a memorable season for Jedd O’Keeffe with Lord Yeats providing the Leyburn trainer with a first listed success when getting the better of a cliffhanger with Second Step in the Fred Archer Stakes at Newmarket in July and his small team accruing 14 winners already this term.
The 15 winners of 2016 should be breached very shortly and his best of 17 in 2015 will hopefully soon be a back number too in the weeks to come.
O’Keeffe said: “It has been a great start for us and we want to achieve our best season but I hate setting targets. We have a good bunch of owners and the quality of the horses has been improving over the past few seasons and we have been lucky as well.”
Lord Yeats could be heading for the Ebor at York next week and there a big targets ahead for the likes of Injam and More Mischief.
Jedd kindly spoke to Tony Elves of ATR about those he hopes can be hitting the heights in the months to come.
