In only his second full season as a trainer, Adrian Keatley recorded the greatest win of his career when Equinegrowthpartners Syndicate Jet Setting upset the form book to land the Tattersalls Irish 1000 Guineas from the long odds-on favourite, Minding.
The victory was on that has thrust horse and trainer into the spotlight. After all, it was only in 2014 that Keatley started with a clutch of low-grade horses in his first yard at Dunlavin, which he rented from fellow trainer Peter McCreery.
Keatley travelled his runners far and wide in order to get those important early wins under his belt, and the results soon came in. After a success at Ayr with Carraroe Flyer in the summer of 2014, Keatley teamed up with John Kilbride, with whom he formed syndicates to purchase bloodstock.
