Richard Hannon Racing

Richard Hannon enjoyed a sensational first season after taking over from his father in 2014, and there has been little let up since. He clocked up his 1,000th winner on Derby Day in 2019 and he already has his eyes on winner number 2,000.

Richard hit the ground running when Night Of Thunder won the 2,000 Guineas and he gained further first-season wins at the top level with Olympic Glory in both the Lockinge Stakes and the Prix de la Foret, with Toronado in the Queen Anne Stakes, and with the flying filly Tiggy Wiggy in the Cheveley Park Stakes.

The handover from four-time champion trainer Richard senior, who remains closely involved on an everyday basis, could hardly have gone more smoothly, for Richard took the championship at the first attempt with 206 domestic winners.
