Racing photographer supremo Pat ‘Cash’ Healy is known to many in the horse racing world. His father Liam senior began the family horse-racing photography business in the 1970s and today Pat Healy is a familiar figure, with his brother Liam, at racetracks around the country and the big meets abroad. His nephew, Kevin, also works alongside them. Pat has photographed nearly every major winner in thirty years and the family business shoe box has winners and golden horse racing moments right back to the 1970s. From following trainers, horses, owners, jockeys, the bookies, stable lads and punters, Pat’s camera lens has captured thousands of precious moments in the great sport of horse racing, many of which can be viewed on his website
