Paddy Brennan rode his 1,000th winner over jumps in Britain and Ireland when Colins Sister justified favouritism at Warwick. Cheap Nike Air Max 90 . Brennan, who won the Cheltenham Gold Cup on Imperial Commander in 2010, has struck up a very fruitful partnership with Fergal OBrien in recent seasons and he trains Colins Sister.The smart mare cruised through the Thoroughbred Breeders Association Mares Novices Hurdle and the 13-8 favourite powered away after the final flight to win in style.

My ambition ever since I came to England was to ride 1,000 winners and win a Gold Cup and Ive done that now.There are so many people to thank - trainers and, most of all, stable staff.Theres been so many highlights along the way. I never thought I was that blessed with talent, that is genuine, I always felt I had to work extremely hard as people put doubts in my mind all the way through.I love proving people wrong and I love to think Im an example to other young jockeys coming through, you might not be at the top but this is possible.Im looking forward to the weekend but well enjoy today.As well as Cue Card and Imperial Commander, Brennan has ridden such top-class horses as Inglis Drever, Tidal Bay, Khyber Kim and Nacarat.Paddy Brennans Fab FivePaddy Brennan has enjoyed many fine victories in his career so far.

Cue Card had the race sewn up two out and Brennan was able to let him coast home in the closing stages and enjoy a tremendous reception.GODS OWN - 2016 BOYLESPORTS CHAMPION CHASEBrennan returned in triumph to his native Ireland as he steered Gods Own to defeat Vautour in the Punchestown two-mile showpiece.
