Did you know: 

From Belfast, Denise Foster has been training since 1998. Better known by her childhood nickname "Sneezy", she comes from a showjumping and three-day-eventing background and her first runners as a trainer were in the point-to-point field. 

Polaris Flame and Supreme Touch were among her early winners on the racecourse proper and the likes of the seven-time winner Tipped Up Harry, the Listed winner Lily's Rainbow, the Punchestown Festival scorer My Cool Lady, Not For Burning, Miles To Memphis and Supreme Touch have brought her notable success. 

In early March 2021, Denise took over the licence to train at Cullentra House while Gordon Elliott served a six-month ban. At the Cheltenham Festival only weeks later, she sent out three winners, four horses to finish second and two horses to finish third.
