It is fair to say that Jordan Gainford made a big leap forward very early in his career, especially after turning professional. He rode his first winner under rules at Downpatrick on September 27th, 2019, a time when he was combining rides under rules and in the point-to-point sphere.

However, he would move to the professional game just over a year later and had a lot of success straight away. His first professional winner came at Navan on February 21, 2021, a great moment at the time, but little did Gainford know that he would soon find himself pushed further into the limelight at a big meeting.

A month later, at the Cheltenham Festival would come around, and Gainford rode his first winner at the meeting, less than a month after becoming a professional jockey. He rode The Shunter to success in one of the festival handicaps, a horse trained by Emmet Mullins.

A couple of months later, Gainford had a treble at Down Royal during a big Bank Holiday meeting, further adding to his success. In February 2022, a year after turning professional, he rode out his claim in full, a great achievement for him and one done in impressively quick fashion too.

That was his 60th total winner, and not only did he manage to ride out that claim, but in the next race, he rode his first winner without the claim to make the day even more special.

In 2022, Gainford rode in his first Grand National, riding Death Duty for the Gordon Elliott team. However, the pair were not able to get too far, as the horse fell at the 8th fence to end their chances of winning. He will be hoping to ride a lot more in the future at this big race and others on the calendar in the UK and Ireland.
