This statue commemorates the racehorse ‘Bobbyjo’. Bobbyjo (1990-2001) was an Irish bred racehorse by Bustineto and Markup, best remembered as the winner of the 1999 Grand National steeplechase at Aintree.

The horse broke a knee at Fairyhouse Racecourse in February 2001 and had to be put down one month later due to his incurable injuries. In addition to the status of the horse, a new steeplechase first run at Fairyhouse Racecourse in February 2003 was named after the horse.
