Add that to the numerous smaller stake winners we have throughout the year and you can see that it has been another great year for the kennels! Overall, we were crowned the Top Ranked Public Trainer in Ireland, based on total wins, with 198 successes from 689 runners – a phenomenal 29% strike rate overall! Not only on physical winners we are also top of the board when it comes to prize money; our owners have amassed a huge €175k in prize money this year!

A final mention to this year, and pretty much our last runner of the year, Chubbys Charmer tasted success in the Monncoin Derby Trial Stake on the coursing field. He’ll now head to the Clonmel Coursing Festival at the end of January.

Taking a quick look ahead to the new year, we have 3 youngsters lined up for the Clonmel Unraced Stake, starting in early January, whilst the likes of Sidarian Blaze, Vans Viking and General Wolf are all penciled in for the Gold Cup at Shelbourne.

So, we’ll close out our final news piece of 2014 by wishing all of our owners, supporters and followers a Happy New Year and wish you all, the very best of luck for 2015!
