Through starting out her career as a jockey, Jessica Harrington was engrossed in the sport of horse racing from day one, earning a reputation as one of Ireland’s best three-day event riders. Not only was she notable in traditional horse races, but she also represented her country at the Olympics and in other international competitions.

After becoming established for jockeying horses, Jessica Harrington moved into training after receiving her training permit in 1989. She did this with her husband Johnny Harrington, who was a highly-regarded bloodstock agent, making him the perfect partner professionally. He sadly passed away after a long battle with cancer in 2014, but Jessica Harrington bravely continued her work in horse racing and was able to find further success since the devastating loss of her husband.

Five years after being given her training permit, Jessica Harrington achieved her first Major National Hunt win when Oh So Grumpy finished first in the Galway Hurdle.

Seeing her second Champion Novice Hurdle win also prompted the start of an illustrious racing career for Moscow Flyer, who would end up being one of her greatest success stories, winning a total of fifteen jump races between 2000 and 2005. Other prolific winners include Spirit Leader, who won the William Hill Handicap Hurdle, the Tote Gold Trophy and the County Hurdle, and Jezki, who won the Fishery Lane Hurdle, the Royal Bond Novice Hurdle, the Paddy Power Future Champions Novice Hurdle and the Herald Champion Novice Hurdle.
