Legendary Jockey Ruby Walsh is recognised as one of the most talented and successful jump racing Jockeys ever.

Ruby has ridden over 2500 winners making him the third most successful jockey in British and Irish history. Born into a horse racing family Ruby showed talent from an early age winning the Irish amateur title twice, in 1996/97 (aged 18) and 1997/98, before turning professional.

In his time as a jockey, Walsh won 2756 races, including a remarkable 2016-17 season that saw him make a world-record 131 wins, beating his own personal record set a decade earlier. Announcing his retirement in spectacular fashion after winning the Coral Punchestown Gold Cup just weeks shy of his 40th Birthday, Walsh went out as a winner to a stupendous standing ovation from onlookers, calling time on the career that earned him a place as one of the best jockeys from any era.

He would win the world’s most famous jumps race on two occasions, replicating his 2000 Aintree Grand National victory In 2004-05. That year, Walsh won the Welsh, English and Irish Grand Nationals to secure three of four Grand Nationals that year. He recorded 59 career winners at the Cheltenham Festival, winning the leading rider award eleven times, making him the most successful rider in its history. Winning over 2700 races in his time on the tracks, stretching 24 years, Walsh truly reached the top of his game. As such, his speeches that cross topics including peak performance, determination, passion and maximising success are an entertaining and inspirational race through three decades of high quality performance.Ruby Walsh
