Top Cheltenham Festival Jockeys: Paul Carberry
Wed, Jan 7th, 2015

Paul Carberry has had 14 Cheltenham Festival winners and is the 11th winning most jockey at the Cheltenham festival since 1945. Paul is the sixth winning most Cheltenham Festival jockey among current riders.

In terms of total wins we make Paul Carberry the  fifth winning most National Hunt jockey currently active - he is closing in on 1500 wins. Paul has won the biggest National Hunt race in the public conciousness, the Aintree Grand National. He landed this in 1999 on  Bobbyjo. The horse was trained by his father.

William Hill make Ruby Walsh 8/13 favourite to win the Leading Rider award at the 2015 Cheltenham Festival.

The Carberry family are renowned in racing and in addition to his training feats, Paul's father Tommy has ridden 16 Cheltenham Festival winners. Paul's sister Nina is probably the best ever lady rider over jumps. Nina has ridden multiple winners at the National Hunt meeting. Paul's younger brother Philip won the Champion Hurdle on Sublimity and rides mainly in France. 

Paul Carberry's 14 Cheltenham Festival wins have been supplied by 11 different trainers.

Here is the complete list :

One of Paul's most celebrated Cheltenham Festival rides was on Frenchmans Creek in 2002:

Trainer Noel Meade did supply Paul with the horses for four of his Cheltenham wins. Here is the first:

but the pairing have had more success at other tracks. Noel supplied the mounts for the bulk of Carberry's 50+ grade one winning rides.
