Did you know: The dominant force in Irish National Hunt racing, Willie Mullins has been champion trainer every year since the 2008/2009 season. In all he trained 32 Grade 1 winners in 2015 and set a record for the number of winners at the Cheltenham festival with eight. He will forever be associated with the legendary Hurricane Fly, twice a winner of the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham, and who was retired from racing in 2015. In a glorious career spanning all of ten seasons, Hurricane Fly won 24 of his 32 starts over hurdles and in doing so, notched up a world-record breaking 22 victories at Grade 1 level. In his final season, Hurricane Fly landed three Grade 1 wins, including a record fifth-straight BHP Irish Champion Hurdle at his beloved Leopardstown which was to be his final success. For seven straight seasons and 30 races, he competed exclusively in Grade 1 company, his brilliance and durability enabling him set that world record of 22 Grade 1 career wins. Ten of those were in Grade 1s at Leopardstown, a venue at which he was never beaten. He was also a standing dish at Punchestown where he was a nine-time winner. He won the last three renewals of the Morgiana Hurdle at the County Kildare venue and was also a four-time winner of the Rabobank Champion Hurdle at the festival.
