Davy Russell: Profile

TigerGaming Poker 100% up To $1000 Welcome Bonus

January this year saw Davy Russell infamously come out of retirement just three weeks after he had supposedly ridden his last race.

Russell stepped back into the game to relieve trainer Gordon Elliott of some stress after Cullentra House Stables’ first jockey had to take time out of racing due to a broken leg.

Russell has ridden more Cheltenham Festival winners than any other current jockeys. This will be his last Cheltenham Festival as a jockey… or so we think!

Date of Birth 27th June 1979
Nationality Irish
Licence Professional Jumps

Who is Davy Russell?

Davy Russell is a three-time Irish Champion Jockey. His long and successful career in the saddle began on the Irish Point-to-Point circuit before he graduated on to riding under rules in 2002 for Middleham-based trainer Ferdy Murphy in the UK. The following year Russell moved back to Ireland and his career skyrocketed from there.

The runner up every year from 2007 to 2001, he was Irish Champion Jump Jockey in 2012, 2013 and then 2018. Russell has ridden over 1,500 winners in Britain and Ireland.
