Arthur Moore learned his trade from his highly-successful trainer father, Dan. Dan was perhaps best known as the trainer of L'Escargot which won the Cheltenham Gold Cup in both 1970 and 1971, as well as the 1975 Aintree Grand National. At that time, Arthur was successfully exhibiting his talents in the saddle as an amateur rider with his most notable win coming on King's Sprite in the Irish Grand National in 1971.
Arthur has enjoyed no shortage of success in his lengthy training career and was Champion National Hunt Trainer in the 1991/1992 season.
He has eight Cheltenham festival winners to his name, He won the Queen Mother Champion Chase with Drumgora in 1981 and with Klairon Davis in 1996, he won the Arkle Chase with The Brockshee (1982) and with Klairon Davis (1995), Second Schedual won the Cathcart Chase in 1993, Fadoudal Du Cachet won the Grand Annual in 2002 and Tiger Cry took the same race in 2008 and in 2011 What A Charm won the Fred Winter Handicap Hurdle.
Arthur has enjoyed tremendous success closer to home, famously sending out Organisedconfusion, ridden by his niece Nina Carberry, to win the Irish Grand National in 2011. Weather The Storm and Roark were early Grade 1 winners, with the likes of Klairon Davis, Mansony, Native Upmanship, Feathered Leader winning multiple times at the highest level.
