John Murphy (Ire)
When most people think of John Murphy, they’ll think of Newmill, the 2006 Queen Mother Champion Chase winner who recorded three Grade 1 victories in all.
John was predominantly a trainer of jumps horses then but he has gradually decreased his involvement in National Hunt since and his flat interest has moved up. There is a strong family aspect to Murphy’s business, which consists of 40 horses. George, his son, is assistant trainer and is hugely involved day-to-day.
Not long back from gaining experience in some of the top yards and training centres in America, George has brought back with him new methods and a new approach to training, something his father is excited about.
