Ado took out his training license in early 2000 after spending many years showjumping. Ado shows great skill in managing to keep his horses running consistently well and his ability to place his charges to great effect has been a feature of his training career. Ado is a proud father of three children, Lorna, Aisling and Tadhg. His wife Hazel, pictured above on the far left, is a passionate supporter of Ado McGuinness Racing and is involved in racehorse ownership, most notably part-owning stable star Bubbly Bellini. Ado is a real family man and his wife Hazel also looks after the accounts side of the business while his twins Tadhg and Aisling are also very much part of the team.

Ado is a Stakes winning trainer and has also managed to win some valuable Premier Handicaps on the the flat in his career including the Irish Lincolnshire, Sovereign Path Handicap on Champions Weekend, Galway Mile and Ahonoora Handicaps at the Galway Festival, November Handicap, Rockingham and Joe McGrath
