A talented and successful amateur jockey, James Nash began his racing education at his family home in Kilcornan, Co Limerick where his father kept a few point-to-pointers. During school holidays, James rode out for Limerick trainer Eric McNamara and from there he graduated to working for the internationally acclaimed Dermot Weld. After losing his claim while apprenticed to the Master of Rosewell House, James turned his focus to the National Hunt sphere and allied himself with the trainer who would go on to rewrite the history books of jumps racing – Willie Mullins.
