Nina Carberry, one of Ireland’s leading amateur riders, could have her first runner as a trainer at Gowran Park on Saturday with Peak Raider.
Carberry is one of several from her family involved in the sport and Peak Raider used to be trained by her legendary father, Tommy, who rode Cheltenham Gold Cup and Grand National winners.
Her brothers, Paul and Philip, are jockeys and Nina herself has had great success in that sphere. She won the 2011 Irish Grand National on Organisedconfusion, trained by her uncle, Arthur Moore, and has been victorious at the Cheltenham Festival four times.
She tweeted: “Delighted to have my first entry as trainer in Gowran Park this Saturday.
“Hope he runs well.”
