Minister Creed Congratulates Aidan O'Brien on World Record

The Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine extends his congratulations to Aidan O’Brien who achieved a new world record for the number of Group/Grade 1 winners in a calendar year.

Minister Creed said 

‘I would like to extend my congratulations to Aidan O’Brien and his team on an historic achievement. O’Brien is simply a phenomenon in the International world of racing, and today is a particularly proud day for all involved with the industry here in Ireland.”

Ireland’s champion trainer won his 25th Group 1 in 2017 earlier this month, when Hydrangea won the Qipco British Champions Fillies and Mares Stakes at Ascot.  This win equalled the record set by Bobby Frankel in 2003.  Saxon Warrior landing the Racing Post Trophy at Doncaster today is Aidan O’Brien’s 26th win, and secures his New World Record outright. 

Minister Creed concluded; 

‘This is a celebration of an amazing year for O’Brien his entire team and for Ireland’s Racing industry as a whole.”
