==Family background, education and early training==
John Oxx is the son of John Oxx Sr., who was himself a successful trainer, winning eight Irish classic races. In 1950 Oxx's father purchased Currabeg, at the southwestern end of the Curragh in County Kildare, from where Oxx still trains. Oxx graduated from University College, Dublin, as a veterinary surgeon in 1973. He worked as his father's assistant before taking over the stable in 1979. In that year he had his first win and his first Group win with Orchestra.〔Holland, Anne. ''Sea The Stars: The World's Best Racehorse'', London: Weidenfeld & Nicolson (2009), p.48〕
