Did you know?

Patrick Mullins was bred for success in the racing industry being a son of former top amateur rider and multiple Champion National Hunt trainer Willie, a nephew of successful National Hunt trainers Tony, Tom and Mags, and a grandson of one of the great National Hunt trainers, Paddy. He claimed the title of Champion Amateur Rider for the first time in 2007/8 season. In 2012, he beat the record of 72 winners for an amateur rider in a calendar year which had been set by Billy Parkinson in 1915, setting the new mark at 74.

He set his sights on Ted Walsh's record of 545 winners when claiming his 400th success on Pearl Diamond at Tramore on August 16th, 2015 and reached that figure when winning the mares' maiden hurdle on the card at Limerick on Saturday, July 14, 2018. The following afternoon at Sligo, the 28-year-old set a new record of 546 winners when winning the the bumper on Queens Boulevard, trained by his father Willie and declared his intention to reach the 1,000 winner-mark. 

Surprisingly, Patrick only rode his first point-to-point winner on March 20th, 2016 when winning on Neon Wolf, trained by Mags Mullins at Ballyragget. He rode his first Grade 1 winner over fences when partnering Douvan to success in the Racing Post Novice Chase at Leopardstown on St Stephen's Day in 2015 and his first Grade 1 over hurdles came when Bacardys landed the Deloitte Novice Hurdle at the same track on Sunday, February 12th, 2017.

He rode a Grade 1 double over hurdles on the penultimate day of the Irish National Hunt Festival at Punchestown on Friday, April 28th, 2017 when he won the Betdaq Punchestown Champion Hurdle on Wicklow Brave and followed up straight away on Bacardys in the Tattersalls Ireland Champion Novice Hurdle.

Patrick rode 40 winners in the 2016/2017 season but lost out to Jamie Codd by one winner in his bid to retain the Amateur Riders' crown that he had held for the previous nine seasons. He reached another notable milestone when recording his 500th career success on Brahma Bull in the Slan Abhaile INH Flat Race at Listowel on September 16th, 2017.

Patrick won the National Hunt Chase on Rathvinden, trained by his father Willie, at the 2018 Cheltenham Festival. He has four winners at Cheltenham to his name having previously won the Weatherbys Champion Bumper on Cousin Vinny (his first winner in Britain) in 2008 and on Champagne Fever in 2012, and the National Hunt Chase National Hunt Chase on Back In Focus in 2013. 

With 57 winners, Patrick regained the champion amateur crown in the 2017/18 season, his tenth time to win the title. He landed a big mid-summer success a few months later when top-weight Sharjah took the Guinness Galway Handicap Hurdle for his father Willie. It was Patrick's most valuable success.
