TY Equine Studies – Jockey (Shane Foley) Visit In

Shane Foley, a leading flat jockey, recently visited CPC to meet 4D as part of the TY Equine Studies module. Shane gave an interesting talk – which the students learned a lot from. There was a wide-ranging discussion about many issues and the students got to put questions to Shane.

Shane explained about his life as a jockey and his routine throughout the year. He told us about how he got into the racing industry and became a jockey … and how he landed his first classic at the Curragh last year. He explained how he travels around the world to ride in races. He also outlined how he maintains his weight and fitness.

It was a great learning opportunity and an enjoyable experience. A big thanks to Shane for taking the time to visit our school and we wish him well for the future.
