DANNY MULLINS INTERVIEW

Danny’s grandfather, Paddy Mullins, is a legendary figure in Irish racing having plied his trade as a trainer for over 50 years with great success, with perhaps his most well-known horse being the legendary Dawn Run.

Two of Danny’s uncles, Willie and Tom Mullins, are   highly-regarded trainers as well, with the former being the reigning Champion National Hunt Trainer. His father, Tony Mullins, is also a successful trainer, having saddled Pedrobob to win at the 2007 Cheltenham Festival, and his mother, Mags, is a very capable trainer in her own right.

With all of this to consider, one would excuse Danny if he were to creak under the pressure of expectations but to his credit he has rose to the occasion and unquestionably has made his own mark on the horse racing scene.
