After Tense Battle, Keane Crowned Irish Champion Flat Jockey For Fourth Time

Colin Keane |

For the third time in the last four years and fourth time overall, Colin Keane will be named the Irish Champion Flat Jockey when the Irish Flat season ends at Naas on Sunday. Keane's title comes after battling with rival Billy Lee for the majority of the season. Keane sits on 90 winners, with Lee second, while the 2020/21 runner-up Shane Foley is third. Wayne Lordan, Ben Coen and Seamie Heffernan are next on the list heading into the weekend. Keane was aboard Westover (GB) (Frankel {GB}) when he won the G1 Irish Derby earlier in the year.

Dylan Browne McMonagle is the Irish Champion Flat Apprentice for the second time, while Aidan O'Brien and Mrs. Sue Magnier are once again the Irish Champion Flat Trainer and Irish Champion Flat Owner, respectively. It was O'Brien's 25th title, and his best runners captured the G1 Irish Champion S., G1 Irish St Leger, and G1 Phoenix S.
