Allaho Horse - Age, weight, trainer, owner, race record and form

After missing the 2022/23 season, Willie Mullins' Allaho was on the comeback trail over the festive period, but another injury meant he was forced to miss this year's Cheltenham Festival.

Mullins' charge put three solid runs together between November and January, but then strained a hock when winning at Thurles. That meant he missed the Festival and the opportunity to claim a third Ryanair Chase.

The 10-year-old had returned to winning ways and produced a solid effort in the King George over Christmas, so connections were confident he could wrestle back his Cheltenham crown this spring after Envoi Allen took the mantle in 2023.

Another setback put those plans on hold, but a return to Punchestown in April is not out of the question.

Horse Racing

Allaho Owner

Allaho is owned by Cheveley Park Stud, which is a thoroughbred racehorse ownership and breeding operation based in Newmarket.

There is evidence of horse breeding on the Cheveley Park Stud site for over a thousand years, and their silks are famous around the world of horse racing.

Cheveley Park is the oldest stud in Newmarket, and their racing colours are red with a white sash and a blue cap. They are synonymous for their results in UK and Ireland, and Allaho is one of their most successful horses in training.

Allaho started his career in Auteuil in France in March 2018 before moving to Ireland. M L Bloodstock LTD previously owned him until December of that year before Cheveley Park purchased him.

Allaho Trainer

Allaho is trained by legendary Irish trainer Willie Mullins, a former jockey and current National Hunt trainer.

Mullins is a 17-time Irish National Hunt Champion trainer, and he is the most successful trainer in the history of the Cheltenham Festival.

He has had over 100 winners at the iconic Festival, dominated on home soil in the Irish Gold Cup, and won the Grand National with Hedgehunter in 2005.

Allaho Age

Allaho is now 10 years old, meaning he may only have a few seasons left at the top of the sport, having made his debut six years ago at Auteuil.

Allaho Weight

Allaho last raced with a weight of 11st 8lbs, but he has raced off 12st in the past at the height of his career.

He has an official rating over fences of 173 and there are currently only two horses in training - stablemates Galopin Des Champs and El Fabiolo - with a higher rating. Shishkin, his conqueror in the King George, is rated the same.

Allaho Next Race

Mullins' charge was set to run in the Ryanair Chase at the Cheltenham Festival in March, but injury shelved those plans.

Connections will now hope he can return in time for the Punchestown Festival in April.

Allaho Record

Allaho has raced 20 times under rules since making his debut in 2018, winning half of them. He has finished second on four occasions and third three times.

Mullins' runner has only failed to finish inside the top three on three occasions, which proves the standard he has competed at for so long.

Going over fences proved the making of Allaho, who has won nine of 15 races over the larger obstacles.

Allaho Prize Money

Mullins' charge has won just over £798,000 in prize money since making his debut at Leopardstown - £733,122 of that total has been earned since he switched to fences.

Nearly £400,000 of that has come from wins at Cheltenham, while two wins and two second-place efforts from five runs at Punchestown have landed connections another £238,000.

So far, Allaho has won four Grade 2 races and four Grade 1 contests, and connections will hope he can add to his tally once he returns to full fitness.

Allaho News

After a 561-day break, Allaho returned to the track at Clonmel in November, winning the Grade 2 Clonmel Oil Chase ahead of Janidil and Grange Walk.

A spirited effort in the King George VI Chase at Kempton on Boxing Day gave connections a further boost, as did his win at Thurles in January.

The plan was to head to Cheltenham in March, sadly, Mullins and his team discovered a hock injury after his win at Thurles, but they will still hope he can have another run at Punchestown before the season comes to a close.
