The Full List Of All 52 Of Ruby Walsh's Cheltenham Winners Shows How Dominant He Really Is

What a week it's been for Ruby Walsh.

The Irish jockey hit up his 50th Cheltenham winner day on Black Hercules, and quickly made it 52 before the end of the day. That brings Walsh to six winners for the festival just one short of his fantastic 2009 haul of seven - with a day left. That should be enough to ensure he is the leading jockey at Cheltenham for the fourth year in a row, or eighth time in nine years.

When you look at all of Walsh's winners at Cheltenham, it's easy to see why he's the most successful rider in Cheltenham's history starting with his first Cheltenham victory on Alexander Banquet in 1998.

He's taken multiple horses to win the same race a number of times, starting with Azertyuiop in 2003 and 2004 - and most successful Quevega in the Mares' Hurdle six years in a row.
