When Richard Hannon Jnr took over the family training business from his father, legendary trainer Richard Hannon Snr, in 2014, he got off to a dream start with triumphs at Royal Ascot. He proved himself during 15 years as his father’s assistant, bringing in top-end clients such as Sheikh Hamdan, Andrew Tinkler, Sir Robert Ogden and Sir Alex Ferguson. Now at the helm of Herridge and Everleigh racing stables, his Wiltshire-based yard, he runs a team of around 100 staff, including his father who has stayed on as assistant. One of Britain’s best equipped training establishments, it has starting stalls, horse walkers, safe and restricted turnout pens, hot showers, digital weighbridges and an indoor school.
