BEAST BOOTED

Perv racehorse trainer sent back to US on child porn charges had ‘stash of indecent images to fill home AND storage unit’

A RACEHORSE trainer extradited to the US on child pornography charges had a stash of indecent images big enough to fill his home and a separate storage unit, a court heard.

Joint American-Irish citizen Daniel Mullan, 80, was booted from Ireland to the US last week to face a string of charges.

The OAP — who helped train Triple Crown winner Secretariat and had ties to Saudi royals — entered federal court in New York in a wheelchair on Friday.

Mullan pleaded not guilty to charges including sexual exploitation of a child and possession of the pornographic footage.

He is also charged with transportation of a minor with intent to engage in sexual activity.

Mullan said he once lived in Saudi Arabia and worked for the late King Abdullah, who bred Arabian horses.

He was a foreman at the champion horse’s stable at the Belmont racetrack in Elmont, New York, in the 1970s. The suspect was arrested in Ireland on foot of a US extradition request in October 2017.

Mullan previously served a five-year sentence here for abusing a boy in Co Mayo in the 1990s.

While in prison, the FBI searched his house in New York, and allegedly uncovered a stash of child porn. Mullan was arrested the day he finished serving his sentence here following the FBI investigation which led to a US extradition request.

Mullan had fought against extradition, but the Supreme Court rejected his final legal challenge to the ruling on July 31.

Now Mullan faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted in the US. In court papers, Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Maffei said the child pornography was created over decades, going back to the 1980s, and stored at his home in Nassau County’s Elmont, as well as in a nearby storage unit.
