Winning Most Cheltenham Festival Jockeys since 1945 (Current Jockeys in Bold)

We have analysed the Cheltenham Festival wins of the top five current jockeys and you will get a perspective of their standing in comparison with those of the past from this table. If you click on the links there is a more detailed profile of each jockey, a breakdown of their Cheltenham wins and video where available.

It is difficult comparing eras. There are more races today and the likes of Tim Molony's 10 wins came in a very different environment before back protectors, googles and the Injured Jockeys Fund. Still when we look at the men at the top of this list we are inclined to think we are living in a golden era of jockeyship.

We have also looked at Total and Grade 1 wins.

Tony McCoy is by far the winningmost jockey with 4165 wins at 27 January 2015. He also has the most wins at the Grand National meeting.

Grade 1 Jockeys

Ruby Walsh tops the Grade 1 wins table by a distance.

Barry Geraghty trails Walsh by over 50 but is just 2 short of a landmark 100th Grade 1 win.

McCoy had his best ever season in 2013-14 at Grade 1 level and now has 87 Grade 1 wins.

The trio are well clear of Paul Carberry with Richard Johnson and Davy Russell in 5th place.
