About Willie and Closutton

Willie Mullins commenced training in 1988 having worked as assistant to both his father Paddy and to Jim Bolger. He still rates his father as the biggest influence on his career. A former six time amateur champion in Ireland, his greatest moments in the saddle were winning the 1983 Aintree Foxhunters on Atha Cliath and the 1996 Cheltenham champion bumper on Wither or Which

As a trainer Willie has won just about every major prize in Ireland, most of the big ones in the UK and several in France as well for good measure. The Grand National, The King George, The Champion hurdle in England, Ireland and France, the Supreme novice hurdle and numerous Cheltenham bumpers

Despite all of the success he has had throughout his career the last nine seasons have arguably been the best campaigns of his career. His horses have remained remarkably consistent, and the 2017/2018 produced a record breaking season with 212 winners from 797 runners

Willie has been the Champion NH trainer for the last thirteen years and he has won the title fourteen times in total.
