Patrick Prendergast has held a trainer’s licence for just over 15 years and in that time he has consistently overachieved with the ammunition at his disposal.
A grandson of the legendary trainer Darkie Prendergast that learned his trade as an assistant trainer to Sir Michael Stoute, Prendergast trains from a historic yard on the edge of the Curragh and has produced a consistent stream of winners in recent years.
Renowned as a particularly good nurturer of two-year-olds, he has sent out the likes of Waterways, Coral Wave, Seolan and Sugar Boy to win at stakes level as juveniles.
Indeed, his current stable star is also a two-year-old, with him having trained Skitter Scatter to win the Group 3 Silver Flash stakes at Leopardstown and the Group 2 Debutante Stakes at the Curragh.
Patrick took time out from his busy schedule to talk through his team of horses with Kevin Blake of attheraces.com.
