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

One of the performances of the four-day Cheltenham Festival this year was Lossiemouth, who was a comfortable winner of the Close Brothers Mares’ Hurdle.

Willie Mullins trains the mare and he has left his options open with which direction one of his star horses goes in.

Lossiemouth Owner

Lossiemouth was bred in France by Sarl Elevage Des Vallons & M Ian Kellit and subsequently owned by S Haynes-Kellitt, Elevage Des Vallons and Y Fouin until November 2022 when switching owner to wine mogul Mrs Susannah Ricci, who has been involved in racehorse ownership along with her husband Rich - who also part-owns Lossiemouth - for years.

Lossiemouth Trainer

Like all of Susannah Ricci’s Irish horses, Lossiemouth is trained by 17-time Irish National Hunt champion trainer Willie Mullins at his Closutton stable. 

Mullins began training in 1988 and has gone on to become one of the greatest of all time in his field, breaking the 100-winner mark at the Cheltenham Festival this year.

Lossiemouth is certainly in good hands with Mullins, who trained a record 10 winners at the 2022 Cheltenham Festival and has won almost all of the top races in the jumps calendar, including both the English and Irish Grand Nationals in his career.

Lossiemouth Age

Lossiemouth is just a five-year-old with plenty of brilliant years ahead of her. 

She made her debut in France as a three-year-old back in 2022 before enjoying an excellent four-year-old season in the UK and Ireland last year.

Lossiemouth Official Rating

Lossiemouth was given an opening Hurdles mark of 140 after showcasing her exceptional talent over the obstacles in two juvenile runs at Fairyhouse and Leopardstown, but quickly rose up the rankings. 

She now has an official rating of 155, making her the joint-seventh best hurdler in Ireland, and looks sure to see that rise in the coming years as her potential may still be untapped.

Lossiemouth Next Race

Willie Mullins has stated that Lossiemouth may go to Punchestown following her win at the Cheltenham Festival or she may not be seen again until the next National Hunt season.

The Irish trainer did add that she was likely to be trained for the Champion Hurdle next season given the dominant nature of her performance but plans for that may depend on Mullins’ other inmate State Man.

If the Mullins’ team do decide to split them up at Cheltenham next year, she could return to the Mares’ Hurdle, where she is currently a 5/2 shot, or go to the Champion Hurdle, where she is priced up at 5/1.

Lossiemouth Record

The only blemish on Lossiemouth’s near-perfect record came in her first race after being given a rating, finishing second behind Gala Marceau at Leopardstown in February 2023.

However, that did not seem to affect Mullins’ charge in the slightest as she went on to reverse the form with Gala Marceau in her Cheltenham Festival debut in the 2023 Triumph Hurdle. 

A victory in the Champion Four Year Old Hurdle at Punchestown closed out last season and she showed no signs of needing a run when impressively beating Love Envoi by nine-and-half-lengths in the International Hurdle at Cheltenham’s January meeting. 

Lossiemouth followed that up with a smooth success in this year’s Mares’ Hurdle, finishing comfortably clear of Telmesomethinggirl in what amounted to a procession in the Cotswolds.

Mullins’ stable jockey Paul Townend has partnered Lossiemouth for her last four victories and he looks set to be in the saddle at Prestbury Park once more.

Lossiemouth Prize Money

Despite running in just seven races, Lossiemouth has already racked up £365,000 in prize money, with £339,000 coming via wins.

Lossiemouth News

After a dominant performance this year, the talk around Lossiemouth will focus on which Hurdle contest she will appear in at the 2025 Cheltenham Festival. 

A repeat win of the Mares’ Hurdle could be her next target but connections are certainly not ruling out her Champion Hurdle possibilities for future renewals of the contest, depending on State Man and potential rival Constitution Hill. 

She is well-loved and well-backed and Lossiemouth could go on to become one of the stars of the sport for years to come.
