Did you know?

From Midleton, County Cork, Paul Townend began his career as an apprentice on the Flat with Willie Mullins and has been associated with the County Carlow trainer ever since. He was crowned champion jump jockey in the 2010/11 season and few would bet against him winning the title again. He continues to enjoy considerable success. Paul rode four winners at the same meeting for the fourth time in his career when taking the last four races at Cork on December 11th, 2016. Included in his haul that day was a success in the Grade 2 Kerry Group Hilly Way Chase on the Willie Mullins-trained Douvan. Paul has eight Cheltenham Festival winners to his name. He rode a double on the final day of the 2017 Festival, winning the County Hurdle on Arctic Fire and the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle on Penhill. Both were trained by Willie Mullins who again supplied Townend with two winners on the third day of the 2018 Festival, Stayers' Hurdle hero Penhill and the Mares' Novices' Hurdle winner, Laurina.
