Mad About Danoli

The late Tom Foley (trainer) and Dan O'Neill (owner) recall the life and times of Danoli, The People's Champion, and one of the greatest racehorses Ireland has ever seen.
People fall in love with other people, people fall in love with places and amongst other things, people fall in love with racehorses. ‘Danoli’, otherwise known as ‘The People’s Champion’ was a racehorse who, in the 1990s won the hearts and minds of the Irish people with his bravery and speed on the track winning at every major racecourse including Cheltenham and Aintree. 

The story of how he was bought, the highs and lows of his career, his retirement and death will be told for the first time in this documentary by, amongst others, his owner Dan O’Neill and trainer Tom Foley.

Produced by Monica Hayes and funded by the BAI with the television license fee.

Mad About Danoli was nominated for a PPI Irish Radio Award in 2015.
