Who’s Who

The Arkle story is made up of a large cast, all playing a vital role. From the very beginning at Malahow, where he was bred by Mary Baker, to his owner Anne, Duchess of Westminster, his trainer Tom Dreaper in Greenogue, work rider Paddy Woods, regular jockey Pat Taaffe, stable lad Johnny Lumley, not to mention “The Lads” working in the yard.

Now, years fifty years on, Arkle has a whole new entourage including the Arkle Memorial Statue committee, sculptress extraordinaire Emma MacDermott, landscape architect Tim Austen, the team at Bronze Art Foundry, the construction crew from Rock Road Stone and an entire town community. That’s pretty good going for a horse that refuses to slip into obscurity.
