An eight-time Champion National Hunt Trainer in Ireland, Noel Meade has been training since 1971 and as well as amassing an abundance of big-race wins over the jumps during his career, he has also an impressive string of important wins on the Flat to his credit. He has been responsible for an array of high-profile horses including Harchibald, Go Native, Pandorama and Road To Riches.

He has had six (as of 2021)  Cheltenham Festival winners, Sausalito Bay (2000 Supreme Novices' Hurdle), Nicanor (2006 Neptune Investment Novices' Hurdle), Go Native (2009 Supreme Novices' Hurdle), Very Wood (2014 Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle) and Road To Respect which won the Brown Advisory & Merriebelle Stable Plate Handicap Chase in 2017. In 2021, Noel won the Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle with the Sean Flanagan-ridden Jeff Kidder. 

Noel was never far from success on the Flat. He landed his first Group 1 winner when the Colin Keane-ridden Helvic Dream landed the Tattersalls Gold Cup at the Curragh in May 2021. 

Noel's first winner was Tu Va at Wexford in 1971. He owned, trained and rode the horse himself. It was his only winner as a jockey.
