The Irish Times - Sports Weekend - - SPORTS - – BRIAN O’CON­NOR

Renowned Curragh trainer John Oxx (in­set) has got a sig­nif­i­cant New Year boost with news he will train the Moyglare Stud Stakes hero­ine Skit­ter Scat­ter in 2019.

The clas­sic con­tender is one of a large num­ber of horses who are set to make the short jour­ney to Oxx’s Currabeg yard from Patrick Pren­der­gast’s nearby sta­bles.

Pren­der­gast him­self will join the Oxx team hav­ing de­cided not to re­new his li­cence de­spite 2018 hav­ing been his most suc­cess­ful year to date as a trainer. “Patrick is mov­ing to work for me, and with a good pro­por­tion of his horses,” Oxx con­firmed on Fri­day. “He’s bring­ing as many of his horses as he can. He’s spo­ken to his own­ers and got quite a lot of sup­port for it. His main own­ers are be­hind it.”
