60 Seconds with Denny Moroney

Undoubtedly the most highly credentialed and well respected member of the team, Denny Moroney, at the tender age of 85, continues to play an integral role in the daily running of the Ballymore Stable in NZ.

Father to Mike and Paul, Denny makes his presence felt in all facets of the stable and very rarely misses an opportunity to travel and lend his time to Chad and the team on racedays.

This week's 60 Seconds focuses on Denny and learning a little bit more about the Ballymore mentor.
