Olly Murphy started his racing life in the saddle, riding 30 winners before embarking upon a career in training under the watchful eye of Alan King.


After moving to Ireland, Olly joined Gordon Elliott as assistant trainer, amassing several grade 1 winners and a string of Cheltenham successes, which were topped off by Don Cossack romping to victory in the 2016 Gold Cup.


In 2017, Olly flew solo for the first time and quickly established an excellent reputation. In the last three years, he has won over £2 million in prize money saddling 216 winners. The future certainly looks bright for this talented young trainer!
