"All in line stables has a year round core group of top class exercise, riders, and grooms."

 

Keegan - the son of a jockey, is a second generation lifelong horseman. He began his career in his native Ireland, before moving to England to work for such notable trainers as John Gosden & the late Sir Henry Cecil around horses like Mashaallah, Keen Hunter, Belmez & Michelozzo.

With a true passion to pursue his career in horse racing, Keegan headed to the U.S. quickly becoming one of the top go to freelance exercise riders on the New York Racing circuit, working along side Champion Trainers like the late Bobby Frankel, Dale Romans, Neill Drysdale & Scott Lake to name a few. He was riding or involved with such notable runners as Ten Most Wanted, Medaglia d'Oro, Peace Rules, Bella Belucci, Fusaichi Pegasus, Sunday Break , Sharp Humor & Thunderello.

During his time in New York, his afternoons were spent working in New York Racing Associations Jocks Rooms and was often relied upon to saddle some of the tougher horses to pass through NYRA's paddocks, saddling the great Galileo & Johannesburg during the 2001 Breeders Cup. His highlight at NYRA was by far the day he saddled the great Cigar to his record breaking 16th and final win and receiving a saddle from Hall of Fame jockey Jerry Bailey.

Before taking over the reins at All In Line Stables, Keegan was Assistant Trainer / Assistant Manager at Goldmark Farm from 2006 - 2015. During his time at Goldmark he was involved in every aspect of the operation. He was directly responsible in assisting a staff of over 55 employees and horses totaling over 200 head. Horses under his care included Backtalk, Cross Traffic, Dullahan, Finnigan's Wake, Groupie Doll, I'll Take Charge, O' Prado Again, Shackleford, Silver Max & Private Zone.

All In Line Stables has been the breaking grounds for many top class horses including; 2005 Kentucky Oaks Winner Summerly, 2010 Kentucky Derby Winner Super Saver, 2011 Fountain of Youth Winner Soldat and 2014 Holy Bull Stakes Winner Cairo Prince, to name a few.   Karl is very much looking forward to working with some new clients and future champions here at All In Line Stables, he and his team will strive to get the best out of every horse in their care.
