Did you know?

From Tralee, County Kerry, Bryan Cooper began his career as an apprentice on the Flat and was based on the Curragh with Kevin Prendergast. However, he only one winner on the Flat and that was Dusty Trail for trainer Eoin Doyle at Tramore in August, 2010. He had already ridden 15 National Hunt winners by then. He claimed the title of Champion Conditional Rider in 2010/11 but his career really took off when he rode three winners at the Cheltenham Festival in 2013. He was hired as the retained rider to Gigginstown House Stud in January 2014. Cooper suffered a broken leg in a fall from Clarcam in the Fred Winter Juvenile Handicap Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival in 2014 and he spent seven months on the side lines. Cheltenham was kinder to him the following year where he partnered the Willie Mullins-trained Don Poli to success in the RSA Chase. But he scaled new heights at the Festival in 2016 where he enjoyed his biggest success to date when taking the Timico Gold Cup on the Gordon Elliott-trained Don Cossack. He rode two winners at the 2017 festival and his tally at Cheltenham stands at eight winners. Bryan lost his position as retained rider to Gigginstown House Stud on Friday, July 28th, just three days before the start of the 2017 Galway festival.
