Hartigan, Frank (1880 - 1952)

Trainer (T)

Associated Places:  Weyhill, Hampshire

Description:

Trainers were first required to hold a Jockey Club licence in 1905 and Frank Hartigan was one of the first to do so. Born at Ballincolig in Co Cork in 1880, he was the son of a veterinary officer. In his youth he rode as a very successful amateur in England, Ireland and frequently in France.

After becoming too heavy for race riding, Frank Hartigan settled down to train at Weyhill in Hampshire. He became one of the most versatile members of his profession, sending out winners on the Flat, sellers, handicappers, Classic winners and a Grand National hero.

Important successes:

1000 Guineas
Vaucluse   1915   (T)
Roseway   1919   (T)
Grand National
Shaun Goilin   1930   (T)
