Horse Racing: Tribute to Weld stalwart at the Curragh.
The Lifetime In Racing series is designed to highlight the people behind the scenes of Irish racing who have devoted their working lives to the industry.
Malone, from Lourdsville in Kildare town, worked for the late Hugh Ryan and Michael Connolly as well as Kevin Prendergast, in addition to his marathon stint with the Weld family at Rosewell House on the Curragh.
Among the highlights of Malone's riding career were wins on Charlie Weld's Coniston in the Powers Gold Cup at Fairyhouse and John Jameson Gold Cup at Punchestown in 1960.
Until his retirement due to illness in 1997, Malone acted as head groom to Dermot Weld. The last race on the card today is the Joe Malone Handicap.
