There is great excitement in the air as we build up to the second running of Irish Champions Weekend. It’s hard to believe that throughout the course of the weekend, over €4m worth of prize money will be up for grabs. It is a pleasure to be a part of such a brilliant weekend of racing action and we’re looking …

Our team for Galway 2015

Posted on July 27, 2015

The seven day Galway Racing Festival is always a very special occasion and we are delighted to be going to Ballybrit this year with a strong team. On the whole, we are extremely pleased with how well all of our horses are running which gives us great confidence ahead of our trip west. It was especially pleasing to see Portage …
Our horses have been running well all season, but despite running well, it seems as though we have cranked it up another notch or two throughout the past fortnight with 16 of our last 23 runners either winning or finishing within the money. We hope that is a good omen for Royal Ascot this week as we are bringing across …

Naas Next For Toscanini

Posted on June 1, 2015

We are looking forward to running Toscanini in the Group Three Racing Post Lacken Stakes (4.45) at Naas today. He mixed it with the very best in the juvenile division last season, most notably filling the runner-up spot in the Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot and chasing home dual Guineas winner Gleneagles in the National Stakes at the Curragh on …
Raydara is set to return to the racecourse for us in the Irish 1,000 Guineas at the Curragh on Sunday.

In the Debutante Stakes last August Raydara defeated Lucida by half a length so her form is stacking …

Conor Hoban loses his claim

Posted on January 18, 2015

We were delighted with Arif’s winning performance at Dundalk last Friday night. The Aga Khan-owned colt ran a great race to finish second at the same track back in December and it was fantastic to see him build on that performance when running out a comfortable winner of the Elusive Pimpernel Maiden under Conor Hoban. The win was highly significant …

Certerach ruled out of our Dubai team

Posted on January 5, 2015

It is with deep regret that we have been forced to rule Certerach out of our team for Dubai after he met with a setback today. It is not a career ending injury and we will look forward to getting him on the racecourse later this summer. Last season Certerach provided us with one of our finest moments in this …
