Donald McCain took over the licence from his legendary father, Donald Senior ('Ginger'), in 2007, and trained a Cheltenham Festival winner in his first season, when Cloudy Lane won the Kim Muir Chase. Whiteoak won at the Festival the following year, while Peddler's Cross maintained the yard's progress when winning at the Festival two years later. Overturn then completed the treble of the Scottish Champion Hurdle, the Northumberland Plate and the Galway Hurdle, all in 2010. Ballabriggs then supplemented Donald's father's four wins in the Grand National when taking the 2011 running of the world's greatest steeplechase and, since teaming up with possible Champion Brian Hughes, the stable continues to go from strength to strength. Donald is based in Cholmondeley, Cheshire.
