Brian set a benchmark for others in the profession to aspire to in years to come when bookending his first season at Manton by winning two of the world's most valuable races, the Dubai Duty Free in the Middle East and Breeders' Cup Turf in the USA, the double yielding staggering prizemoney of £2,777,688 It was an achievement recognised with the coveted 'International Trainer of the Year'.
In between that magnificent twin triumph, he registered a fine season on the domestic front, highlighted by David Junior's win in the Group 1 Coral Eclipse at Sandown in mid-summer.
Even before the move at the beginning of 2006 to the Sangster family's legendary estate on the Wiltshire Downs near Marlborough, Brian was widely acknowledged as a trainer going places.
When he set up his own training business in Lambourn in 1992, the son of a Limerick orthopadic surgeon had eight horses, one of them owned by his ever supportive close friend Richard Hannon, to whom he had been assistant trainer for six years.
Quote from Brian Meehan:
Becky has treated horses for me for several years both with Shiatsu therapy and Scenar treatment. She travelled with Red Rocks to America and treated him with great effect prior to and after his Breeders Cup win.
I can recommend Becky for treating horses with pre and post race treatments, muscular issues and minor injuries.
