Our follow up series of Jockey Eile wrapped filming on Saturday 12th October at Fairyhouse. A huge crowd of family, friends and work colleagues came along to the racecourse to cheer on their jockeys and scenes of jubilation greeted the winner on returning to the wnners enclosure.
The final race run over 2 mile sat Irelands premier racecourse was the culmination in 10 gruelling weeks of Bootcamp and placement in some of Ireland's top racehorse trainers yards. This year the wannabe jockeys were placed with Noel Meade, Pat Martin, Gordon Elliott and Tony Martin - all Meath based trainers.
Horses for the final race came from Timothy Doyle, Noel Meade, Gordon Elliott, Pat Martin, Thomas Cleary and Gordon Elliott.
The series will start broadcasting from Sunday November 17th and will run for 6 weeks.
A massive thank you is extended to HRI, The Turf Club, Pellettstown Riding Centre, RACE, the Curragh Racecourse, Laytown and especially Peter Roe and his team at Fairyhouse racecourse.
