A qualified vet, John McConnell began training in 2001 but had to wait until June 2005 for his first winner which came at Bellewstown in the shape of Grand Lili which was ridden by Brian Byrnes.

Based in Stamullen, County Meath, John has enjoyed a steady stream of success ever since, with his most notable winners being Sophist in a Grade 3 juvenile hurdle at Fairyhouse in 2006, Orgilgo Bay in the Lartigue Handicap Hurdle at the Listowel Festival in 2014 and with Go Another One in the Grade 3 Michael Purcell Memorial Novice Hurdle in February 2019. John also boasts a good return on his runners in the UK. 

A Case Of You, ridden by Gary Carroll, gave John a first Group race success in the Group 3 Anglesey Stakes at the Curragh in October, 2020.
