The Kinane family produced generations of jockeys who excelled in horse racing through grit, talent and a legendary work ethic.

Three generations of journeymen jump jockeys and one Flat world champion. No less than twenty of the Tipperary Kinane family have ridden in races; on and off the track they maintain a high work ethos - many have worked in Ballydoyle and still do, and Aidan O'Brien values them highly.

From humble beginnings with many mouths to feed, theirs is a story of hard work, gambles, injuries, unsung heroes, bad luck and good luck, and ones that got away. Tommy Kinane broke his neck in a fall, managed to ride in the next race by slapping his face to keep awake - and won it.
