Fermoy native Shane Baragry is a son of a former rider Jerry, whom himself rode 99 winners, and he followed in his father’s footsteps with a first ride at Killeagh in 2016. It was his father who provided him with his first successes on back-to-back weekends 10-months later with Heez All Talk winning at Loughrea and Carry On Asian at Rathcannon. Fourth in the Novice Rider's table in 2017, he went one place better in 2018 in a season which saw him ride five winners, including a first double at Bartlemy in 2018 that featured DJ Sasha, the horse who had provided him with his first ever ride.
