One of Britain’s youngest racehorse trainers, who is based in Newmarket and will send out her first ever Cheltenham Festival runners next week, is becoming trainer ambassador of Huntingdon Racecourse.

Former amateur jockey Amy Murphy, will saddle Kalashnikov in the opening race of The Festival, the Grade 1 Sky Bet Supreme Novices’ Hurdle.

The five-year-old horse has been defeated just once in his five-race career.

His latest victory, in the Betfair Hurdle at Newbury last month, was the biggest success for the trainer to date.

Amy Murphy, 25, has worked for former international footballer Michael Owen’s trainer Tom Dascombe, Australian handler Gai Waterhouse and Luca Cumani in Newmarket.

She set up as a trainer in August 2016 and has since sent out 27 winners and won prize-money of more than £300,000.

As well as star horse Kalashnikov, the trainer could saddle a second runner at Cheltenham.
