From Goresbridge, County Kilkenny and from one of Ireland's great racing families, David Mullins began his career as an amateur rider and rode his first winner on 33/1 shot Rathvawn Belle at Punchestown in February, 2013. He went on to ride 12 winners as an amateur. His professional career started with a bump rather than a bang as he was unseated from Elm Lee on his first ride but his luck quickly changed as just half an hour later, he partnered Fosters Cross, trained by his father Tom, to success in the Horse & Jockey Hotel Handicap Hurdle at Thurles on December 21st, 2014.
David enjoyed his first Grade 1 success when partnering the Willie Mullins-trained Nichols Canyon to win the StanJames.com Morgiana Hurdle at Punchestown in November, 2015 and is a multiple Grade 1 since. His biggest win came in the shape of Rule The World which he guided to win the Crabbie's Grand National for trainer Mouse Morris at Aintree in April, 2016. At 19 years of age, David was the first teenage jockey to win the biggest race in the National Hunt calendar since Pat Buckley scored on Ayala in 1963.
