KEVIN DOWLING

CONDITIONAL JOCKEY

Co Kildare in Ireland is home to The Curragh, so it was no surprise when Kevin Dowling, who was born locally in the small village of Robertstown, set his heart on being a jockey. He started riding out for Naas trainer Micky Cleary and then signed apprentice forms with Charles O’Brien, son of the legendary Vincent O’Brien. Kevin, 19, has been at Barbury since September 2014.
