    Nepotism in Horse Racing

    Does it exist

    Aidan O'Brien admits it's a special feeling to see his son Joseph partnering so many big winners for his Ballydoyle stable.

    He will be in the saddle for Camelot's bid for Investec Derby glory, as he was for the win in the QIPCO 2000 Guineas, and O'Brien senior admits it's going to be a big day at Epsom

    "We are enjoying what is a fairytale with Joseph riding these big winners, but I don't even want to think about how I would feel if the dream became reality at Epsom," he said.

    "Joseph has never known anything but horses from the moment he could walk. He used to sit in the back of the jeep with me on the gallops in the mornings before he went to school, and then he would ride out every weekend.

    "He has been involved in all the discussions about the horses from an early age, and he has been with us in the good days and the ordinary days."
