Which trainer provides Hollie Doyle with most winners?
Hollie Doyle made the perfect start to her riding career, winning on The Mongoose, trained by David Evans, on her first racecourse appearance at Salisbury in May, 2013, and has never looked back. In 2019, Doyle became the winning-most female jockey in a calendar year in Britain, with 116 winners. In 2020, she rode 151 winners, breaking her own record and, on October 22, 2021, rode her 152nd winner of the year to do so again.
In 2015, Hollie Doyle became apprenticed to Richard Hannon, so it should be no surprise to learn that the Wiltshire trainer was her principal benefactor in 2016 and 2017. Indeed, Hannon provided her with 10 of her 33 winners in 2016 and 20 of her 59 winners in 2017. Doyle rode out her claim in November, 2017, and the following season began a fruitful association with fledgling trainer Archie Watson, which would result in her succeeding Edward Greatrex as stable jockey at Saxon Gate Stables in 2019.
Indeed, since 2018, it has been Watson that has provided Doyle with the vast majority of her winners. In 2018, he provided 22 of her 54 winners and, in her subsequent, record-breaking seasons, 46, 39 and 43 winners, respectively. All told, in the last five seasons, Doyle has ridden 150 winners for Archie Watson, 28 winners for Richard Hannon and 26 winners for William Stone; in that same period, she is also into double-figures for Tony Carroll, Alan King, David Loughnane and Richard Spencer.
