Did you know:

Gordon Elliott began his racing career as a teenager, working for Tony Martin at weekends and during school holidays. Having taken out his amateur rider's license at the age of 16, he went on to be a prolific rider both in the point-to-point field and on the racecourse. He rode a total of 46 winners on the racecourse, with the highlight being his win in the Punchestown Champion Bumper on the Nigel Twiston-Davies-trained King's Road in 1998. He also and also rode as an amateur for Martin Pipe. Having hung up his riding boots at the end of 2005, he began to concentrate on his new career as a trainer the following year. Gordon Elliott came to worldwide attention when training Silver Birch (Robbie Power) to win the Aintree Grand National in 2007, a success made all the more remarkable by the fact that, at the time, he had yet to train a winner in Ireland. Don Cossack (Bryan Cooper) gave him another major success in the Cheltenham Gold Cup in March, 2016 and he sent out his first winner at Royal Ascot when Commissioned (Adam Kirby) landed the Queen Alexandra Stakes in June of the same year. It is believed the Elliott became the first trainer to saddle six winners at an Irish race meeting in modern times when he dominated the card at Navan on Sunday, November 27th, 2016. His haul on the day included winning the historic Troytown Chase for a third successive year. At the time he said, "It's been a brilliant and unbelievable day. We've had seven winners on one day, split between Bellewstown and Perth, but we've never had six on the same card. I'm just lucky to have such a good team of horses and great staff, and to have a day like this at my home track is fantastic. We knew we had plenty of good chances coming here today, but to have six winners is something else."
