Henry de Bromhead is the only trainer in racing's rich history to have won the Champion Hurdle, Champion Chase and the Gold Cup at the Cheltenham Festival in the same year. 

He won all three races in 2021, taking the Champion Hurdle on the Rachael Blackmore-ridden Honeysuckle, the Champion Chase with Put The Kettle On, which was ridden by Aidan Coleman and the Gold Cup with the Jack Kennedy-ridden Minella Indo. He also took the runner-up spot in the Gold Cup with A Plus Tard which was ridden by Blackmore. As of 2021, de Bromhead has 15 Cheltenham Festival winners to his name. 

Just three weeks after his ground-breaking Cheltenham Festival success, Henry won the Aintree Grand National with the Rachael Blackmore-ridden Minella Times. For good measure, he also saddled the runner-up in the race, Balko Des Flos (Aidan Coleman). 

Since Henry de Bromhead took over the reins at his father’s County Waterford yard in 1999, he has gradually built a reputation as a shrewd and able trainer. He was well and truly launched onto the international stage by the emergence of Sizing Europe and that horse became one of the most popular horses of his generation. In all, he won 20 races including seven Grade 1 contests, with the highlight arguably being his success in the Queen Mother Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival in 2011. Sizing Europe had won the Arkle Chase the year before. Sizing Australia won the Cross Country Chase to complete a double for the yard in 2011 and de Bromhead gained his fourth Cheltenham Festival winner when Special Tiara won the Queen Mother Champion Chase on March 15, 2017. 

Balko Des Flos was a Cheltenham Festival winner for the stable in 2018 and the following year there were two more as Rachael Blackmore won the Close Brothers Novices' Handicap Chase on A Plus Tard and followed up on Minella Indo in the Grade 1 Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle. 

Put The Kettle On and Honeysuckle were both winners at the 2020 Cheltenham Festival and were among de Bromhead's six winners at the Festival the following year. He only lost out to Willie Mullins for the leading trainer title in 2021 on countback after both men saddled six winners. Put The Kettle became the first mare to win the Champion Chase in 2021.
