Andy Duff, Benny McCabe & the Slane Castle Stables

Andy Duff was based in the Slane stables in County Meath for much of the 1960s where he was the principal jockey for trainer Tony Riddell-Martin. I interviewed him at his home in Slane Village in 2015, alongside his friend Benny McCabe, who was a stable boy at Slane during the Riddell-Martin years.
