Darragh O'Keeffe has enjoyed a successful start to the season


Darragh O’Keeffe has surged to the top of the leading jockey standings following a strong start to the National Hunt season.

O’Keeffe, who was champion conditional jockey two seasons ago, has earned 43 victories in 2021/22 to date – just one shy of the total he managed across the last campaign.

The Doneraile man’s recent successes include The Irish Stallion Farms EBF Mares Beginners Steeplechase, which he won aboard Magic Daze at Cork on Sunday, and The Irish National Hunt Steeplechase Committee Beginners Steeplechase at Fairyhouse which saw Gabynako triumph.

Jordan Gainford sits second in the fledgling standings with 37 wins to his name while Mark Walsh, Brian Hayes and Rachael Blackmore complete the top five.
