Dundalk 12/10/18

Trainer’s Thoughts Unfortunately, Crimping ran no sort of race for us last week at Dundalk and we will have to go back to the drawing board. She definitely has the ability and hopefully, she shows us something at the track soon. It was a quiet week on the racing front at Grougha Stables and we [...]

Naas 30/09/18

Trainer's Thoughts We were out of luck at Navan on Saturday but positives could be taken from the runs of both Grougha Stable runners. Confident Kid travelled very well for a long way and we just think the trip may have stretched him slightly. See Of Rome was short of room inside the final couple [...]

Navan 29/09/18

Trainers Thoughts The Warrior Geo did us proud yet again at Dundalk on Friday night, running an absolute cracker to go down by the width of a cigarette paper in 2nd. He just doesn’t know how to run a bad race and he showed his battling qualities to almost get back up for the win [...]

Dundalk 28/09/18

Trainers Thoughts We wanted to hit the ground running last Friday and we did exactly that. Alfirak did the business in the Galaxy Racing Syndicate Silks and brought up our 50th winner. Geo is back in action on Friday night over a much more suitable trip in the conditions race at 7 pm while Dance [...]

Fairyhouse 24/09/2018

Dance Alone at Fairyhouse Friday was a momentous night for us here at Grougha with Alfirak providing us with our 50th winner. He was given a peach of a ride by Rory Cleary to score by just under a length in the Galaxy Racing Syndicate colours and the celebrations continued on into the early hours [...]

Dundalk 20/09/18

Trainer's Thoughts  There is a real buzz around Grougha Stables at the moment. Most flat yards are winding down at the minute as the end of the flat turf season approaches, but at Grougha it feels like the season is only getting underway. Friday night racing at Dundalk is back and while it took the [...]

Galway Festival 2017 Day 2

Day two of the Galway Festival and we have our first runners of the week with four declared today.   Mystical Affair runs in the 7:05 and she'll need to step forward a good deal to play a part today. She's a lovely filly with a likeable forward attitude but this is a competitive maiden [...]

Naas 26/07/17

A busy night at Naas with five runners declared. In the 6:55 we run Bluesbreaker and Master Bond. Bluesbreaker ran very well at Fairyhouse on Sunday showing signs of his old self, he came out of that race well so we thought we'd give him another chance this evening with the hope he builds on [...]
