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 [...]

Naas 21/05/17

Geological (4:45) is our only runner today at Naas. He won well the last day at Leopardstown and we're hopeful the four pounds he received for that win won't be enough to stop him. He came out of the race really well and is bouncing again. He's drawn two which is also an advantage. Shane [...]

Chester & Dundalk 12/05/17

Tribal Path (1:50) runs today in Chester. He travelled over on Wednesday afternoon and has settled in well. He may be a big horse but Tribal is incredibly agile and we are hopeful that the track may play to his strength's. Unfortunately, the draw has not been kind but usual tactics will be employed. It [...]
