A big part of the operation at Warren Chase Stables from an early age, an accomplished Point to Point jockey and a natural horseman Olly then spent time with Alan King before moving to Ireland as Assistant Trainer to Irish Champion Trainer Gordon Elliott in 2012.
From an early age Olly’s future lay in the racing industry. Originally Olly’s ambitions were in the saddle. He attended Pony Club, hunted and led his Mum’s string, before riding in point-to-points and progressing to riding as an amateur under rules. He rode 30 winners before he inevitably outgrew his breeches!
Once Olly had decided he wanted to a train, he spent a year with Alan King. He then made the move to Ireland, joining Gordon Elliott as Assistant Trainer. Olly spent four seasons with Gordon, tasting success at the highest level. During Olly’s time, Gordon won several Grade 1’s, numerous Festival winners and was all topped off by Don Cossack winning the 2016 Gold Cup.
In 2017, the time came for Olly to take up the reins himself. Two years into his training career, Olly has trained 170 winners and won over £1.3 million in prize money. Not a bad start so far!
“Many of my staff have been with me since day one. There is a great team atmosphere at Warren Chase, I’m very lucky to have such a good bunch”. Olly Murphy
