Edward J. O'Grady
Back in Front wins the Supreme Novice Hurdle Cheltenham, March 2003
“Edward trained my very first Cheltenham Festival winner, Mister Donovan, who won the 2m 5f novice hurdle (now the Nepturne Hurdle). It’s fair to say if you want to get into the winner’s enclosure at Cheltenham, Edward is one of the best trainers around to take you there”
