Roger Quinlan is one of the most experienced riders on the point-to-point circuit, who has parternered many household names to success during the infancy of their careers. A brother of fellow riders Sean and Liam, Quinlan recorded his initial points victory at Punchestown aboard Five Rascals in February 2001. Since then, he has guided two subsequent Irish Champion Hurdle winners to win four-year-old maiden winners, namely Petit Mouchoir at Kirkistown and Faugheen at Ballysteen.
