Nicky Henderson is without doubt one of the biggest and most recognizable names in horse racing. The Lambourn Jump trainer has saddled over 2,000 winners in his career including a staggering 58 at the Cheltenham Festival and has been British Jump Racing Champion Trainer on Five occasions, including last season.
Henderson has handled some of the biggest names in the history of National Hunt racing such as triple Champion Hurdle winner See You Then and more recently dual-Queen Mother Champion Chase winner Sprinter Sacre – one of the greatest National Hunt horses of all-time.
Nicky enjoyed another fantastic season in 2016/17 with over £2 million in prize money and three wins at the Cheltenham Festival (including a record breaking sixth Champion Hurdle success). The success continued in 2017/18, as Nicky was named Champion Trainer for the fifth time, guiding to likes of Buveur D’air, Altior and newest star Might Bite to some stunning wins.
Might Bite has been Henderson’s standout star so far in 2018 as Runner up in the Cheltnham Gold Cup, narrowly losing out to Native River. He has also stood out at Aintree, winning the Betway Bowl and taking his career wins to 10 in the process.
