Stan Begley


Stan Begley is the grandson of the late great Stan Cosgrove who will be forever remembered in the Irish horse racing scene. Today at Leopardstown, Stan junior was crowned the 2022 Corinthian Challenge Champion. A graduate of Agricultural Science from UCD, he also completed The Irish National Stud breeding and management course in 2017. He also recently achieved a Masters in Business Management from UCD Smurfit School of Business. After his studies, he spent some time working at Arrowfield Stud in Australia and Coolmore America before returning home to The Irish National Stud in Kildare where he is a Breeding Management Assistant. Although having always worked on the breeding side of the industry, Stan was very keen to get involved in the racing side of it and the Corinthian Challenge has been a great opportunity to do so over the last few months. Throughout the entire series he has been riding out most mornings for Mark Fahey and has thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this experience of a lifetime!

Stan commented, “It has been such a buzz, unbelievable and still a bit surreal really. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mark Fahey and his whole team for their continued support throughout and the owners who have afforded me the opportunity to ride their horses in each race. The series is a great initiative to raise vital money for the injured Jockeys fund and I would like to thank everyone who has supported me in particular, my main sponsors Kildare House Hotel and Sycamore Lodge Equine Hospital.”


We have teamed up with JustGiving to enable racegoers and supporters to participate in what promises to be a very entertaining saga. Each rider will have their own microsite detailing their progress, their highs and lows, with feeds to their social media channels. Help them along the way to raise money for Irish Injured Jockeys by clicking on the JustGiving logo below.


Irish Injured Jockeys was set up in 2014 to increase awareness and raise vital funds to support injured jockeys. Led by Chairman Ruby Walsh, and leading riders including representatives of HRI and The Turf Club, Irish Injured Jockeys’ vision is to provide long-term care and guidance; not only when jockeys have suffered injury through race-riding, but when they will need help in their secondary careers and in their lives after they have finished riding.
