Tommy rode his first winner (Tripacer) over jumps at the 1962 Cheltenham Festival meeting and went on to become Irish champion national hunt jockey on five occasions. Dan Moore (Carberry's father-in-law) provided the ammo for many of his big-race triumphs including 9 of his festival wins. We have video ot Tommy on the great L'Escargot (winner of two Gold Cups and a Grand National) in the 1970 Gold Cup :

Tommy also teamed up with Jim Dreaper winning a World Hurdle and two Irish Grand Nationals on Brown Lad and the 1976 Gold Cup on Ten Up:

Tommy was forced to retire after injury in 1982 but his family have continued to excel.  Tommy trained Bobbyjo to win the 1999 Grand National. The horse was ridden by his son Paul.

Paul is a former Irish Champion jockey and has notched 12 Cheltenham Festival wins to date but is hardly finished winning Festival races yet. He continues to demonstrate his genius in races such as the 2012 Welsh National.

Daughter Nina, became the first woman to defeat the professionals at the Cheltenham Festival aboard Dabiroun (2005 Fred Winter Novices' Handicap Hurdle) since Gee Armytage (1987) and following up on Heads Onthe Ground two years later in the Sporting Index Cross-Country Chase. She also won the 2011 Irish Grand National on Organisedconfusion ( trained by her Uncle Arthur Moore !).

Another son, Philip, won the 2006 Irish Grand National on Point Barrow and landed the biggest race to allude Tommy when winning the the 2007 Champion Hurdle on Sublimity. Peter John is the youngest and latest off the Carberry- Moore jockey assembly line !
