Willie Mullins – Festival Statistics 2005 – 2013
Since 2005 the Ryanair, Gold Cup, Champion Chase, and Arkle all share the same statistic. A Willie Mullins horse has failed to win any of those races. Indeed, since 2005 the trainer has claimed only the RSA, Cross-Country, and National Hunt Chase from the Chasing Festival programme.
In the same period, the Supreme Novices Hurdle, Neptune Novices Hurdle (Twice), Mares Hurdle (Five Times), Champion Hurdle (Twice).
Three Handicap Hurdles have fallen the trainer’s way. The Martin Pipe Hurdle (Once) and County Hurdle (Twice).
The Champion Bumper has fallen his way four times since 2005.
