Richard Harding has amassed a wealth of experience in a race riding career in the point-to-point fields which saw him record his 200th winner at Dowth Hall in 2016, 15-years after he first got off the mark in the sphere aboard Corravilla at Nenagh in 2001. A season's best 30 winners followed in the 2009/10 campaign putting him in the top-5 riders nationally, recognising his talents which also saw him record a number of Cheltenham Festival victories, including his first two throughout the 2006 Festival on horses trained by Ferdy Murphy. He has also guided subsequent Aintree National winner Ballabriggs to Festival glory.
