Willie Mullins’ Son Patrick to Ride for Rival Gordon Elliott as Shock Defection Reason Revealed

, Willie Mullins’ Son Patrick to Ride for Rival Gordon Elliott as Shock Defection Reason Revealed

Patrick Mullins to Ride for Gordon Elliott

Patrick Mullins, son of renowned trainer Willie Mullins, is set to ride for one of his father's biggest rivals, Gordon Elliott. This surprising move comes as the reason for the shock defection becomes clear.

Navan Race

On Saturday, Patrick Mullins will be riding the Elliott-trained My Trump Card in the concluding 2m flat race at Navan. This is an unusual occurrence, as Patrick is usually seen on one of his father's highly promising horses in a bumper.

Bective Stud-owned Horse

Although Willie Mullins does not have a runner in the race, Patrick will be aboard the Bective Stud-owned five-year-old. The reason for this unexpected choice is that Patrick actually bred the horse himself.

My Trump Card's Performance

My Trump Card has yet to win a race, having finished fourth on debut in November last year and second in a recent race at Navan. The horse was purchased for £200,000 at the Goffs Landrover Sale in June 2021.

Patrick Mullins' Success

Patrick Mullins has been in great form recently, with a 50% strike rate in the past two weeks, winning four out of eight rides. He typically rides for his father, who is a highly successful trainer and will be targeting major victories at Cheltenham next March.

Upcoming Races

In the lead-up to Cheltenham, Willie Mullins will be focusing on Leopardstown at Christmas and the Dublin Racing Festival in early February. One of his star horses, El Fabiolo, will make his seasonal return this Sunday and has been entered in the Grade 2 Hilly Way Chase at Cork.
