Jamie Snowden

Trainer Jamie Snowden began his time in racing at a very young age. Working his way through the ranks of pony racing, followed by point-to-point racing, while he also spent time with Nigel Twiston-Davies during his school years, picking up invaluable insight into how a racing yard works.

He would go to New Zealand at an early age, becoming an assistant trainer on the flat over there, again picking up vital information that he would use later in life. During his time in the military, he was perhaps the most in-demand rider for the military races at Sandown each year. He won the Grand Military Gold Cup and the Royal Artillery Gold Cup four times each, showing his dominance in this division.

Snowden would become a trainer in his own right in 2008, but after riding and before this, he spent time with two of the biggest names in the game. He had one year as a pupil assistant for Paul Nicholls and then three years as assistant trainer to Nicky Henderson, again picking up invaluable experience from these two big names in UK racing.

That gave him a platform to build on, which eventually led to Snowdon moving to purpose-built and much bigger premises in 2011. He would begin to have regular success there, his first winner after the move would be in the Summer National, and in 2014 he would land his first Cheltenham Festival win.

The Grand National took Snowden some time to reach, but in 2021, he would eventually have his first runner in the race. Hogan’s Height was the horse, and he would complete the course at his first attempt, finishing in 12th position under Gavin Sheehan.

With such a good base to build on, it would be no surprise to see Jamie Snowden have more success in the future.
