Ballydoyle is the racing arm of Coolmore and the very stuff of racing legend. From here, Dr. M.V. O’Brien, one of the founders of Coolmore, sent out the winners of six Epsom Derbys, and every other race in Europe worth winning. Some of the greatest horses in the history of the turf were prepared under his meticulous gaze. Today, Ballydoyle is under the equally meticulous eye of Vincent’s unrelated namesake Aidan O’Brien. His first ever runner was a winner, and horses that start from Ballydoyle have once again been accorded considerable respect by the bookmakers ever since.
