A compulsive liar, if he was 1 million ahead of Mullins with 1 day to go he'd still say he won't win it.

Gordon Elliott is simply a fantastic trainer of a racehorse.
Oh and one thing for sure is he can train horses better than most plum sounding Irish Pr1cks ....

He has the Midas touch no doubt. Proved the old saying that everyone is good at something. He has certainly used the skills he was given, not all of us can say that.

Didn't know the story about being poor at literacy. He also, like Davy Russell, come across as sound. Obviously has the knack to train a racehorse and learnt from Martin Pipe. I' say he must have a thorough and professional team behind him as well, it seems quite an operation there.

Maybe Giggingstown's role as owners is also a positive. He trans them, they worry about placing them.

I've come across plenty of Cream Crackers in my time and Elliot is far from being one. A decent man who'd do you a turn, so ****. off slimy ****.s.u.c.k.e.r.s., the man's a genius.

When it comes to training, only Mullins and Henderson come close to Elliott, but he could give more than a sentence when being interviewed. He always has to rush off for the photo.

Admitting to being barely able to read or write is a load of bawloxx. I’d say he can read or write a lot better than the clown who posted that absolute pile of shiite.
That nugget is coming from workrider, a chap who has the intellectual capacity of a 10 year old .

Some rubbish posted; somebody said give trainer a donkey & he can't win with it but there are plenty of trainers who given a good horse would soon have it running like a donkey
I don't if he has an intelligent mind but he knows enough about racehorses to get them to win - that'll do for me
Who care if trainers don't give an interview after a race; I've heard a few before races are run & i'm still none the wiser if their horses are likely to run well

I would look again at his 2nd and 3rd strings in these big races. Not being dodgy, it's just that he has such firepower in his ranks, in sheer numbers, never mind Russell and Kennedy's abilities and very able deputies in the likes of Donoghue. Clear evidence he is still getting some big priced winners, taking aside the Irish GN when he had so many entries in the first place.

Also, almost forgotten this week. The GN was the only race the Irish targeted in numbers, other races only had selective Irish entries but a handful of winners anyway ensued. The GN - blew mostly the GB trainers out of the park. Can't see many GB trainers coming over to Punchestown.

Having spent most my life riding horses, I would argue with the person who says anyone can train a good horse, no one can train a bad horse. This is simply untrue.

Anyone can get a racehorse fit, but placing it in the right races is the art of a good trainer or the people that assist him.

Some trainers are simply not very good at placing horses, and it's made harder by having owners who always want to run at big tracks.

I used to ride one horse for a trainer who always ran at your Newbury's, Goodwood's, Ascot's and so on. Yes always in 0-80s or 0-85s but the horse wasn't good enough to win in that company. When the horse was sold rated 69 out of the yard, it improved a lot from running at lesser tracks for a smaller trainer. It ended up winning a decent handicap at Newmarket as this time it had confidence.

But you can give an average horse to a small trainer and they will get a lot more out of it than a big trainer will. Give a group horse to a small trainer and they probably wont get it to achieve what a big yard will as they dont have other horses like it at home to help it progress.

A lot of innuendo from a few posters that the use drugs are the reason for the success of irish trained horses at Cheltenham and elsewhere.

Can these posters give one tiny shred of evidence as to why they made these assumptions?
