Ryder Cup Superstar Brooks Koepka and LIV Golf’s Graeme McDowell Team Up to Buy Racehorse

, Ryder Cup Superstar Brooks Koepka and LIV Golf’s Graeme McDowell Team Up to Buy Racehorse

Ryder Cup sensation Brooks Koepka and his LIV Golf partner Graeme McDowell have joined forces to purchase a brand new racehorse, thanks to the assistance of Megan Nicholls.

Introducing Megan Nicholls

Megan Nicholls, daughter of the renowned trainer Paul Nicholls, is both a former Grade 2-winning jockey and a successful agent for top jockey Kevin Stott.

A Horse Racing Enthusiast

It turns out that Megan Nicholls is not only a talent in the racing world but is also passionate about helping golf professionals Brooks Koepka and Graeme McDowell pursue their love for the sport.

Givemefive: The New Addition

In a video for Tote, trainer Harry Derham disclosed that it was Nicholls who played a crucial role in the acquisition of Givemefive, the racehorse.

Givemefive, a three-year-old gelding, previously triumphed in an Irish Flat race under the guidance of jockey Ben Coen. With the recent victory, Givemefive has now amassed approximately £5,000 in prize money.

A Future Star

Now, Givemefive is preparing for a flourishing career in jumps racing, potentially even making appearances at prestigious events such as the Cheltenham Festival and Aintree, if everything goes according to plan.

Derham's Insights

Derham, who had previously served as an assistant to the talented trainer Nicholls, expressed his excitement about Meg's purchase, stating, "My cousin Meg has just acquired Givemefive for Graeme McDowell and Brooks Koepka."

"He had previously won a race over a mile and a half in Ireland and currently holds a rating of 69. Givemefive is a likable, tough, and durable horse who has the potential to be a fantastic and enjoyable juvenile hurdling prospect," Derham added.

Golfing and Horse Racing Success

Graeme McDowell, who once referred to himself as a "racehorse coming up the inside rail," enjoyed a fantastic year in 2010, where he won the US Open at Pebble Beach and made the winning putt for the European team in the Ryder Cup at Celtic Manor.

As a close friend of Brooks Koepka on the LIV Golf circuit, McDowell cheered on European players during their victorious performance against the US team led by Luke Donald in Rome this week.

Koepka, a five-time Major champion, was not as fortunate, suffering a resounding defeat in the Ryder Cup when he and partner Scottie Scheffler lost 9&7 to Viktor Hovland and Ludvig Aberg during the Saturday morning foursomes.
