Thrill and Spills
By Pat Healy
For four decades HEALY RACING has photographed the world of Irish horse racing.
Delving into an archive of thousands of images, photographer Pat Healy and sports journalist Donn McClean selected over 200 golden Irish jump-racing moments. Their book captures the last decade of thrills and spills (2011-2020) – the sheer spectacle that is the Irish horse-racing scene.
The sport’s biggest personalities, and their horses, are celebrated through the lens: JP McManus, Michael O’Leary and Gigginstown House Stud, Rich and Susannah Ricci, Willie, Patrick and Danny Mullins, Gordon Elliott, Jessica Harrington, Jonjo O’Neill, Henry de Bromhead, Nina and Paul Carberry, Ted, Ruby and Katie Walsh, Barry Geraghty, Davy Russell, AP McCoy, Paul Townend, Jack Kennedy, Rachel Blackmore, Bryan Cooper, Robbie Power, Jamie Codd, Lisa O’Neill and so many more.
For every leap of victory and fist pump, there is a crunching fall or a win that almost was: HEALY RACING has captured it all.
