Dundalk 07-12-18

Trainer’s Thoughts See Of Rome ran an excellent race last Friday under Andy Slattery to run third in the big race of the evening. Geological, off top weight, ran a little below best and has earned himself a nice winters break. It is a busy night for Grougha at Dundalk this Friday night and we [...]

Dundalk 23/11/18

Trainer’s Thoughts Red Avenger ran in the mile claiming race at Dundalk on Wednesday and acquitted himself well to finish 4th under Rory Cleary. He seems to be coming back to himself and hopefully, he improves again next time out. We weren’t sure what to expect from Mulzamm but we were delighted with how he [...]

Dundalk 9/11/18

Trainer’s Thoughts We were delighted with See Of Rome’s performance at Naas. Warnaq got first run on See Of Rome and he was unable to peg him back in the closing stages. Still, it was a fine effort to finish second and he picked up another bit of prize money for the Bright Star Syndicate. Dance Alone [...]

Dundalk 02/11/18

Trainer’s Thoughts It wasn’t to be at Galway for Tribal Path on Monday as his wide draw seemed to cost him and could never dominate the race as he likes. We will freshen him up once more and he will continue over the winter at Dundalk. We had a very interesting week at the sales, [...]

Galway 29/10/18

Trainer’s Thoughts The ground ultimately proved a bit too quick for Mokhalad on Saturday and unfortunately, he could only manage a midfield finish. It is such a pity that there wasn’t a bit more cut in the ground but hopefully he gives the Galaxy Racing syndicate something to shout about at Dundalk in the coming [...]

Leopardstown 27/10/18

Trainer’s Thoughts It was a mixed night for Grougha at Dundalk on Friday night but I was happy with the efforts of Alfirak in the closer. He looked the winner when they turned for home but he just ran out of petrol in the closing stages. Perhaps it was the wide draw that cost him [...]

Dundalk 26/10/2018

Trainer’s Thoughts Sorry about the lack of updates last weekend but unfortunately we experienced some technical difficulties with the site. See Of Rome was undoubtedly the highlight at Naas on Sunday, winning stylishly under a very well judged ride by stable apprentice Stephen Mooney. Hopefully it is the first win of many for the Bright [...]

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 [...]
