O'Meara Denies Link To Ballydoyle Job
Highly respected young UK trainer David O'Meara has scoffed at speculation linking him with a move to the powerful Coolmore operation, reports Racing Post. There have been whispers circulating in British racing suggesting that Aidan O'Brien, the most successful Flat trainer of the modern era, could leave the John Magnier-owned Ballydoyle stable. Stories in two newspapers, one in Britain and one in Ireland, have suggested O'Meara is in line for the coveted role, but the North Yorkshire-based horseman says the rumours are not true. "I have never been approached by anyone at Coolmore regarding Ballydoyle," O'Meara said. "There is no substance to the rumour."
