Who is Lucinda Russell?

Lucinda Russell is a prominent British horse racing figure known for her prowess as a National Hunt trainer. Her ability to maximise the performance of her horses is evident. Russell’s Arlary House Stables is in Kinross, Scotland, and has a solid reputation for producing top-quality jumpers. Her yard consistently produces competitive horses for the biggest races in the UK and Ireland.

Russell achieved a significant milestone for any horse racing trainer in 2017 when she won the Grand National with her horse One For Arthur. She became the first Scottish-based trainer to win the historic Aintree race since 1979. She claimed Aintree glory again last year with Corach Rambler, teaming up with jockey Derek Fox to win their second Grand National as a partnership.

Russell was a successful amateur jockey before turning to training. She’s renowned in the racing world for her meticulous approach to horse care and training, focusing on each horse’s individual needs. Her stables have become synonymous with nurturing talent and achieving success through extensive hard work at the highest levels of jump racing. Her partner and assistant trainer, Peter Scudamore, an eight-time champion jockey, is a prominent member of her stables team.
