Denis O’Regan is a jockey that has spent time riding in both the UK and Ireland during his career. An Irish native born on March 24th, 1982, he’s had plenty of winners on both sides of the Irish Sea, too, with many trainers supporting him in that quest.
Dermot Weld, Noel Meade and Howard Johnson are just some of the names that have given O’Regan regular rides in big races, and there are plenty more that have helped O’Regan over the years.
The 2008 Grand National was the highlight of the O’Regan/Johnson partnership, with two stable stars winning at the Cheltenham Festival. Inglis Drever won the World Hurdle, the third time that he’d already won the race, and Tidal Bay won the Arkle Chase, delivering a Cheltenham Festival that the pair would never forget.
In terms of the Grand National, Denis O’Regan has had plenty of opportunities but has yet to win the race, despite taking some very good rides. His 2010 ride on Black Apalachi gave O’Regan a second-placed finish, the closest he’s come to winning the race. It was AP McCoy and Don’t Push It that came home in front that day, but O’Regan and Black Apalachi were the only ones who got close, and they finished an excellent second.
