Top Jumps Owner Mike Grech Moves All Horses To Ireland – originally posted on Sportslens.com
Leading horse racing owner Mike Grech has announced today that he’ll be moving all his horses to Ireland, with top yards like Willie Mullins, Gordon Elliott and Gavin Cromwell expected to get the bulk of Grech’s horses.
Former Cheltenham Gold Cup winning trainer Henrietta Knight manages Grech’s horses and told the Racing Post the main thinking behind the switch is because Mike Grech will be based more in Ireland in the coming years with offices in Dublin for his business interests.
Before the move, Grech’s well-known black and pink silks had been seen on horses housed in Britain at Nicky Henderson (4 horses) and one with David Bridgwater.
Knight told the Racing Post: “Mike is moving all his horses to Ireland because he’s going to be spending more time there in the future. He’s going to be working more over there, with offices in Dublin.”
Henrietta Knight is also a regular at the big sales and recently was very active and one of the main spenders at the Tattersalls Derby Sale – buying three horses for a total cost of €525,000 and two of those were purchased for Grech at around €200,000 each.
Brandy Love (Willie Mullins) is a big name that Grech owns too, who was an easy winner of the Grade 1 Irish Stallion Farms EBF Mares Novice Hurdle Championship Final in April at Fairyhouse – you can back Brandy Love @ 8/1 with 10Bet for the Mares’ Hurdle at the 2023 Cheltenham Festival.
Knight added to the Racing Post: “Mike had horses with Nicky Henderson last year and is very fond of him. They’re great friends and it was tough for him to say he was going to move the horses across, but he feels he’d like to have them in the same country where he’s going to spend most of his time so he can see them run.”
Another well-known name for Grech is I Am Maximus, who was last seen running fourth behind Sir Gerhard in the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle at the 2022 Cheltenham Festival, is one of the most prominent horses to switch stables, while Fils D’Oudairies, runner-up at both the 2022 Aintree and Punchestown festivals for Nicky Henderson, is a possible runner at the Galway Festival later this month.
“I’d imagine Gordon, Willie and probably Gavin Cromwell will train the horses now,” said Knight to the Racing Post
“Fils D’Oudairies is with Gordon. We’re hoping he’ll go to Galway for a hurdle race as Mike will be over for that. I Am Maximus is going to join Willie, and I think I Am Rocco will be heading there too.”
She added: “Fortunedefortunata, who won on his first start for David Bridgwater, is also going to Gordon. A couple of the young ones we’ve bought at the sales will probably go to Gavin.”

Taylor Swift’s rep responds to reports the singer has the worst private jet carbon emissions
A spokesperson for Taylor Swift has responded to a report that named the singer as the celebrity with the worst private jet CO2 emissions.
Yesterday, a report released by Yard claimed the American singer was the biggest CO2 polluter of the year so far, having flown in her private jet 170 times since January and totalling 8,294.54 tonnes of CO2.
However, Swift’s spokesperson told Buzzfeed News the statistics are inaccurate.
For context, the report claims the average person produces just seven tonnes of carbon emissions per year.
Swift’s representative said only some of the 170 flights can be attributed to the singer: “Taylor’s jet is loaned out regularly to other individuals. To attribute most or all of these trips to her is blatantly incorrect.”
Regardless, it is clear Swift’s jet is racking up significant amounts of carbon emissions due to its inefficient use.
According to the Yard report, her average flight time is just 80 minutes, and her jet’s shortest recorded flight flew between Missouri and Nashville for just 36 minutes.
Other significant celebrity polluters include boxer and domestic violence perpetrator Floyd Mayweather, whose shortest flight was just 10 minutes long but emitted one ton of carbon; Kim Kardashian, who has emitted 609 times more carbon than the average person; and director Steven Spielberg, who took an 18-minute flight between Rotterdam and Amsterdam – a route which, when taken by train, takes only an hour.
The subject of celebrity carbon emissions has blown up ever since Kylie Jenner shared an out-of-touch photo of her and partner Travis Scott posing in front of their private jets with the caption, “you wanna take mine or yours?”
In the midst of the backlash, many began diving deeper into Jenner’s private jet use by examining the Celebrity Jets Twitter account, which records celebrity private jet trips.
Many were horrified she was regularly taking flights as short as 12 minutes and reprimanded her for “her absolute disregard for the planet”.
Many found it hypocritical that ordinary people were being asked by big companies to reduce their car trips and use paper straws when celebrities are constantly leaving huge carbon footprints with frivolous trips in their private jets.
Despite the wave of criticism, celebrities have continued to take private flights between short distances.

How to Make Sense of a Very Unpredictable Fall Movie Season
All of a sudden, the fall movie season looks very busy. This week brought two big festival announcements loaded with major films to come: First came Venice, with a lineup that includes everything from Darren Aronofsky’s “The Whale” to “Bardo”; it was followed by TIFF, where Steven Spielberg’s “The Fabelmans” will premiere alongside Sam Mendes’ “Empire of Light” and Sarah Polley’s “Women Talking,” among many others. Meanwhile, Telluride continues to shroud its selections in secret, but the latest lineups help us get a sense of what to expect there as well.
In this week’s episode of Screen Talk, Eric Kohn and Anne Thompson dig through both lineups to get a sense for which films could impact the coming awards season and why it’s almost certain to be an unpredictable ride. They also address the return of competitiveness between festivals that seemed to subside earlier in the pandemic, and touch on the recent changes to the Oscar submission rules in France.
Watch the full episode above or listen it below.
Screen Talk is produced by Azwan Badruzaman and available on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, and Spotify, and hosted by Megaphone. Browse previous installments here, subscribe here, and be sure to let us know if you’d like to hear the hosts address specific issues in upcoming editions of Screen Talk.
