Gordon Elliott, 42, is an Irish trainer who has won the Grand National three times. The first with Silver Birch in 2007. He subsequently trained Michael O’Leary’s Tiger Roll to become horse racing’s first back-to-back winner of the gruelling jumps race in 2018 and 2019 since Red Rum in the 1970s.

However, Elliott, who is from County Meath, does not come from a racing family like many other top trainers.

He began his racing career as a youngster, working weekends and during school holidays for Tony Martin; regarded as one of Ireland’s most astute trainers.

He went on to become a prolific rider, working for Martin Pipe; who trained a record-breaking 4,182 winners, before branching out on his own. Elliott rode 46 wins on the racetrack before “putting up his riding boots in 2005,” according to his website.

He has trained 32 winners at the prestigious Cheltenham Festival, where he has twice been the leading trainer.

Elliott is one of the sport’s most well-known figures in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
