We are looking forward to running Toscanini in the Group Three Racing Post Lacken Stakes (4.45) at Naas today.

Raydara ready for 1000 Guineas return

Posted on May 22, 2015

Raydara is set to return to the racecourse for us in the Irish 1,000 Guineas at the Curragh on Sunday. The form of her juvenile campaign has been given a boost in the Newmarket 1,000 Guineas, when Lucida finished second to Legatissimo.

We were delighted with Arif’s winning performance at Dundalk last Friday night.

Posted on November 11, 2014

Venezia completed a memorable evening for us at Dundalk when running out a clear-cut winner of the concluding Dundalk Stadium On Facebook Maiden, and in doing so, completed a four-timer for us, the second of which we have recorded at the County Louth racecourse. The son of Galileo was formerly trained in the UK and he finished a good fourth …
