Sligo Jockey To Ride A Winner at Galway Races

A report just in that a man from deepest darkest rural Sligo hopes to hit the big time at the Galway festival this week and bag a winner.


The hopes and good wishes of family and friends are – excuse the pun – riding on the fortunes of Patrick McCock (34) who is colloquially known as “pat me cock”.


We were told that the former postman who always wanted to be a jockey is pursuing a long held dream to ride a winner at the popular and world renowned race meeting. We understand that all eyes from Cliffony will be focused on Ballybrit this Friday.

Leg Over

SligoSligoNews managed to speak to Pat earlier– “Sure I’ve no interest in horses,” he said, “that’s a mugs game.” He has high hopes to get his leg over one Debbie Winner, “a fit bird from Malahide.”


Incidentally Pat’s infamous chat up line goes – “Hello, how are ya? I’m Pat McCock and sure go on if you like .”
