QUOTES

‘He is a cracker of a foal. I’ve bought a few by Famous Name and I’m mad about them. I think he could be a serious stallion.’
Bryan Murphy, December 2018

‘His profile suggests his best results will come with his three-year-olds and older horses.’
Siglinde McGee, The Irish Field, 20th January 2017

The form book tells you that he was the most genuine and most prolific winning horse in the history of the European Pattern.’
Teddy Grimthorpe, Juddmonte farms

‘This is a special moment. Famous Name is just an amazing horse. His enthusiasm for training and racing is unlimited, he loves life, loves being a racehorse and just a joy to train.’
Dermot Weld, 9th September 2012, after Famous Name’s penultimate win
