Fergal has been involved in racing for all of his working life since leaving his beloved Ireland in 1989 to head to England in pursuit of a career in the National Hunt field.

He, along with his still friends, Richard Bevis and Richard Curran, initially learnt their trade, and with it the harsh realities of a racing yard, under the strict guidance of Captain Tim Forster and this early experience has certainly proved to be a major asset on Fergal’s own journey to now being a fully-fledged trainer in his own right.

In 2011 after a brief yet highly successful career as a Point to Point trainer Fergal decided, with the backing of Cheltenham Corporate Hospitality pioneer, Chris Coley, to set up his own yard, initially at Cilldara Stud near Northleach before then moving back to Upper Yard at Grange Hill Farm. The winners began to flow and in 2019 the exciting move to Ravenswell Farm was made where the landlord, Rupert Lowe, has created a new state of the art training establishment with 80 stables, both an Uphill and a Round Gallop, an Owners’ Room, an Office and 8 en suite bedrooms for staff accommodation.
