Did you know:

From Tinahely, County Wicklow, Philip Rothwell started his training career as a fresh-faced 21-year-old and wasted little time in making an impact, saddling his first winner with just his second runner when Adam'sfool won a bumper at Down Royal on May 3 1999.

Experimental was an early standard bearer for the Rothwell yard and a first notable winner came in the shape of Black Apalachi which was a Grade 2 novice hurdle winner at Naas in February 2005 and landed a huge pot when successful in the Paddy Power Handicap Chase at the Leopardstown Christmas Festival the following December. 

Three months later, Rothwell landed Cheltenham success when Native Jack won the Cross Country Chase to give Davy Russell his first Festival winner. 

The likes of Dark Bolero, Jamies Choice and Tally Em Up kept the flag flying for Rothwell and another major success came his way at the Punchestown Festival in 2010 when Divine Rhapsody won the Goffs Land Rover Bumper. 

A steady stream of winners, including at three at the 2021 Punchestown Festival, sees Rothwell fast closing in on the 350-winner mark.
