From Toulouse, France, Christian Delcros first came to Ireland in 1977 to work for trainer Liam Browne and then Darkie Prendergast. When Dessie Hughes took out his own licence to train the following year, Christian went to work for him and stayed until 2010. He then worked for Ian Williams in Alcester, England for a year but returned to Ireland in 2011 and began breaking and pre-training. He took out his own licence in early 2017 and enjoyed his first winner when the Simon Torrens-ridden Rossmore's Pride landed the Adare Manor Opportunity Handicap Hurdle at Down Royal in March, 2018. It was also a first winner in the saddle for Torrens.
