Throughout the last decade, Jessica Harrington has become firmly established as one of the top duel purpose trainers in Ireland, culminating with her glorious victory of her Sizing John in this year's Cheltenham Gold Cup, and in doing so, becoming the most successful female trainer ever at the festival, and earning herself the title of the "Queen of Cheltenham"!
However, training is not the first discipline in which Jessica has excelled. Prior to taking out a training permit in 1989 she was renowned as one of the country’s top three day event riders having represented Ireland with credit at European, World and Olympic level.
In the early nineties Jessica swopped a permit for a full training license, and high profile results soon followed. Jessica is now associated with some of the great Irish national hunt horses of recent years, from the legendary Moscow Flyer, to recent champion hurdler, Jezki, and now, Gold Cup winner Sizing John. Top flat horses have also resided in Jessica’s Moone, Co. Kildare stable, including high-class filly Bocca Baciata.
