Trainer Profile – Venetia Williams

Venetia Williams was born in Cornwall and rode as an amateur jump jockey until suffering a serious neck injury in 1988.

She worked for champion trainer Martin Pipe and for John Edwards before setting up as a trainer at Ty-Pengam in 1995.

Venetia Williams

She tasted big race success with Teeton Mill in the Hennessy Gold Cup and the King George VI Chase in 1998.

In 2009 she trained 100-1 outsider Mon Mome to win the Aintree Grand National, only the second female trainer to win the race after Jenny Pitman.

She also had a Cheltenham Festival double in 2009 with Something Wells in the Festival Plate and Kayf Aramis in the Pertemps Final.

Venetia Williams – Key Trainer Stats

Williams enjoyed her most prolific spell as a trainer between 2002 and 2009, training more than 63 winners for seven consecutive seasons.

Her best season numerically was 2012-13 when she trained 90 winners.

Although she has maintained such high numbers, the quality remains high and her horses earned a record £1.56 million in prize money in 2021-22. It eclipsed her 2008-09 season which yielded £1.46 million.

Venetia Williams Big Race Wins

The grey Teeton Mill would be the best horse trained by Williams to date. The grey won the Badger Beer Chase, Hennessy Gold Cup, King George VI Chase and Ascot Chase. Unfortunately, he dislodged a tendon on his hock during the 1999 Cheltenham Gold Cup and was pulled up. He was subsequently retired and served as a hack for Williams.

Mon Mome produced a stunning performance to win the 2009 Grand National at 100-1. There was no fluke about his victory, sprinting 12 lengths clear under Liam Treadwell. Williams described it as the best day of her career.

Lady Rebecca was another stable star, her victories including a hat-trick in the Cleeve Hurdle from 1999-2001.

Venetia Williams – Most Famous Victories

Mon Mome had finished tenth in the 2008 Grand National and the French-bred gelding put the experience to good use when romping away with the 2009 renewal. It had been exactly 100 years since the last French-bred horse won the big race. He was the longest-priced winner since Foinavon (100-1) in 1967.

Teeton Mill started second favourite for the Hennessy Gold Cup but was always travelling best under Norman Williamson. He led at the third last and drew clear to win by 15 lengths. The King George was the obvious target to the grey after that commanding success. Once again he was second favourite but he made light of the step up in class, beating Escartefigue and Imperial Call comfortably.

Summary of Jumps Trainer Venetia Williams

Venetia Williams has been at the top of her profession for many years.

She struck twice at the 2022 Cheltenham Festival and her runners are always a threat in top staying chases.
