In 2014, Mikey Fogarty rode 12/1 shot Don Poli to Cheltenham glory for Gigginstown House Stud in the Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle.
After achieving 140 career wins, Fogarty retired from riding at the end of last year and has since returned home to County Wexford to work along side his brother at Gaynestown Stud.
BetBright were lucky enough to catch him on one of his days off , where he shed some light on what it means to ride at the festival, who his influences were and how he rode Don Poli to victory back in 2014.
Watch that and much more from Mikey Fogarty in ‘Cheltenham Through The Eyes Of… A Jockey II’.
