Nicky Henderson Closing In On Festival Winners Record
17/02/12

Trainer Nicky Henderson saddled two winners at The Festival in 2011, including a first Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup with Long Run, taking his overall record at the meeting to 39 winners.

This means he is now just one winner shy of the all-time record of 40 Festival winners, achieved by the late Fulke Walwyn between 1946 and 1986. With a powerful team to look forward to again in 2012, there must be every chance that the master of Seven Barrows can re-write the history books.

Reigning champion trainer Paul Nicholls has been leading trainer at The Festival six times and is now fourth on the all-time list with 30 successes, despite only saddling his first winner at the meeting in 1999.

Ireland’s most successful current trainer at The Festival is now Willie Mullins, who has 21 winners to his name. Mullins landed the Thomas Pink Leading Trainer Award for the first time in 2011 when his four victories included Hurricane Fly in the Stan James Champion Hurdle.
