How Did Nicky Henderson Become Famous?



Being the son of the founder of Racecourse Holdings, Johnny Henderson, Nicky grew up very familiar with the racing industry and riding as well as training horses. He attended Eton College and worked first as an amateur jockey. He subsequently served as an assistant trainer to Fred Winter from 1974 to 1978, before establishing himself as a trainer based at Lambourn, Berkshire. His first racing success would come in 1985 when he would win the Champion Hurdle with See You Then. He then won the same competition two more years before going to his next victory with the horse Remittance Man, which won the Queen Mother Champion Chase in 1992. His next victory would not come until more than a decade later, when his horse Punjabi would win the Champion Hurdle in 2009, held at the Cheltenham Festival, Binocular. The following year, Punjabi would win at the Champion Hurdle once more. Nicky’s horse Long Run also won the 2011 Cheltenham Gold Cup and his horse Bobs Worth would win the 2013 Cheltenham Gold Cup. Afterwards, he would get his fifth win and tie the record set by Peter Easterby.

Henderson also had the horse Zaynar which won one race, and Nicky’s record continued to shoot up as well as his net worth. He is one of the best active trainers with only Willie Mullins winning a few more races than him. Henderson then relied mainly on jockey Mick Fitzgerald until the latter was forced to retire due to injury. He then worked with Barry Geraghty until the 2014 seaso, and then with Nico de Boinville. One of Henderson’s most popular horses is Caracciola which won the Cesarewitch Handicap flat race despite having odds of 50/1. The horse was pegged low in the bracket due to the animal being mainly a National Hunt horse. Caracciola would then go on to win the Queen Alexandra Stakes which would also be later won by another Henderson horse named Veiled. Bobs Worth also held an undefeated streak at Cheltenham winning numerous top rank races.

Nicky Henderson Controversy

Henderson had a bit of controversy in 2009 after he was found guilty by the British Horseracing Authority of breaching rules. His horse Moonlit Path failed a drugs test, and soon he would admit that he was guilty of three of the four charges he faced in the case. He used an anti-bleeding drug on the horse, and though the drug should not have been used, he defended that it was done for the horse’s welfare and not to enhance her performance. The controversy escalated the following month when a hearing was sanctioned. He was fined 40,000 pounds which became a record penalty for a sport in the UK and he was also banned from running horses for three months. The ban only had minimal effect as he primarily trained his horses in jumps. He was allowed to continue training during the ban but was not allowed to enter horses in competition. This led him to lend his horses temporarily to friend and fellow trainer Barry Hills. He also attended the event Royal Ascot which caused a bit of controversy, but he defended his attendance saying that he was a guest and was not warned to stay away from the event.
