Did you know: Enda Bolger is undoubtedly the master when it comes to cross-country and banks races, having amassed a record that is never likely to be surpassed in them. In a fine riding career, Enda rode many winners for the legendary P.P. Hogan, including no less than five renewals of the Champion Hunters Chase at the Punchestown Festival. Until J T McNamara surpassed it in 2006, Bolger had previously held the record for the number of wins in point-to-points with 413, having been crowned champion point-to-point rider on seven occasions. Enda has trained since the late-1980’s and has put together an incredible record in banks and cross country races, with multiple wins in the La Touche Cup at the Punchestown festival and the Cross Country Chase at the Cheltenham Festival. Ted Walsh rode Enda's first winner, Fearless Leader, in a bumper at Roscommon in September, 1986.
