Much-loved Irish racing trainer Peter Casey dies at 82

As well as being a viral sensation, the Dublin native was a much-respected trainer.

POPULAR RACING TRAINER Peter Casey has passed away. He was 82.

The Dubliner trained Flemenstar to three Grade 1 wins.

The first of those wins came six years ago in the Irish Arkle, prompting Casey to tell RTÉ’s Tracy Piggott: “I can’t believe it. I’ll have fucking sex tonight and everything.”
