Robert Fetherstonehaugh, known to his friends as Bob, was born in 1873 and became a successful racehorse trainer in Ireland. He became assistant trainer to the wonderfully talented trainer Henry 'Atty' Persse at Stockbridge in Wiltshire. He then hit lucky when the Ballylinch Stud, Kilkenny, breeder and owner Dermot McCalmont sent him horses to train in his own right. He trained consecutive Irish Derby winners in 1944 with Slide On (SR 1928) and 1945 with Piccadilly (SR 1853), both ridden by John Moylan and owned by Major Dermot McCalmont. Sadly he died in 1950 aged 77.
