J P McManus – Leading Cheltenham Festival Owner

JP McManus is the most successful owner at the Cheltenham Festival with 66 wins. His first win came back in 1982 with Mister Donovan. He followed that up in 1983 but then had a relatively long wait until 1991 before this third win.

He has been consistently successful since 1994 and enjoyed his best ever return in 2020 with seven wins. Five of the 2020 wins were ridden by Barry Geraghty. Given the association of the famous green and gold silks with Sir AP McCoy it will be surprsise to some that Geraghty has ridden more winners at the Festival for McManus than any other jockey. Barry has ridden 13 winners, Sir Anthony 9 , Nina Carberry 6 and Charlie Swan 5. Jonjo O’Neill has trained 11 of his winners.
